Introduction

This is my Mother-in-law's recipe. We traditionally serve it with a piece of bread floated on top of the soup, a generous sprinkling of cheese over the bread, broiled until bubbly and golden. Since cutting out animal products, I skip the cheese and save quite a few calories. This is my Mother-in-law's recipe.
