      Yum! This is a delicious recipe! A good hearty soup with wonderful flavor from the garlic. I added some bacon bits for even more smokey flavor. Excellent comfort food on a cold night. Thanks for the recipe!

      This soup is fantastic! I added a bit more garlic, a half-teaspoon of allspice, a half-teaspoon of paprika, and either some chopped crispy bacon or Canadian bacon. I also used my immersion blender. It would go great with some homemade garlic croutons. Thank you for sharing this!
