New Taste Thinking:
This recipe makes a lot of soup. The good news is that it freezes well.
This was a very popular soup at my restaurant. Back in those days I finished the soup with heavy cream and it was great. I have changed my ways and now I like to add the creaminess to my soups with nut butters. 1/2 cup may seem like a lot of almond butter but it is only 8 tablespoons which is less than half a tablespoon per serving.
