This one is for all the soup lovers out there.  While I must admit it is a lot of work, it was the best soup I ever had. It was just delicious, super filling, crunchy, heartwarming and oh so creamy.

Can I also turn you into a soup lover with this yummy recipe too? Like said it was a lot of work but it is worth it. Trust the soup nerd, which I definitely am 😉

Empty plates and my table guests asking for seconds is always a good sign!
