    I just made this for dinner !! It was such a hit 😀 and I can’t believe how fast it was to whip everything up. I also love that you add veggies and chicken broth; it makes it a healthier soup, which is much needed this time of year! 😀 thank you for sharing. Everyone really loved it!

    I served it with garlic and herb croutons.. and I also had cashew cheese on the side. We dipped pita crackers with it. Yummy ?

    I just wanted to point out that your directions say “parsley,” instead of basil!

    This one’s a keeper! Thank you! 🙂
