First things first - we'd like to remind you that we do have lots of information on vegetable varieties here on our website.
We also have recipes at this location on our website.
Some of the information in this post can be found on our website as well. But, the great thing is that there is MUCH more on the website than there is here. Between the two, we have some pretty good resources.
This post is dedicated to giving you some recipe information.
While the following soup is pretty rich, we both like it. Especially in the Fall when the weather gets a bit cooler. The trick is trying to prevent yourself from having that second bowl right away. Save some for the next day, the soup gets even better with a day for the flavors to mix.
