  5. Stir until everything is well coated with the spices.

  7. Stir, then bring to a boil. Lower heat, and simmer for around 20 min.
  8. Remove bay leaf. Add 2 tbsp lemon juice.

If you would like to make this vegan, simply use all oil, instead of butter, and veggie stock instead of chicken stock! An amazing vegan soup!!

  1. This is one of my favourite soups!! I triple this recipe and it freezes beautifully. I also made it for some vegan friends and they loved it.
