I found this on allrecipes.com and the basic recipe is by /ruth Gooch [found here]and this is really a wonderful tasting soup--so much good flavor here. I use Rapunzel brand vegetable broth and this makes a huge difference--it comes in dry form. I also added 1/4 tsp of cardamom seed. I used regular potatoes.The spices make this soup sooooooo tasty!! This is also good with apple, sweet potatoes , and green beans added.
