I know soup is more a cool weather meal but these cooler days are putting me in the mood! Actually I can eat soup almost anytime, it’s generally a one pot meal and there seems to always be leftovers for another meal. It takes a little time to put together but then you can sit back and just wait until it's done. I often use the crock pot. This is one of my favorites and it uses edamame (shelled soy beans) which I had never used before making this soup! I like trying new things; it’s available in the frozen veggie area of the grocery frozen foods. Try it. I think you will like it!
