It is officially soup season. The only thing I’ve been drawn to cook and to eat lately has been SOUP.
And, despite the way it’s been looking on NTTC… I promise that this is not becoming a soup blog. But for now… here’s another soup recipe!
It’s warm comforting, and there are just ENDLESS options. When I spotted this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a go. It’s reminiscent of cabbage rolls (a family favorite), but made in a fraction of the time, and eaten with a spoon.
I enjoyed this batch of soup over several days and even froze a few servings for the chilly days to come. Thanks, Gina, for another incredible recipe!
