Yes, I am crazy about soup. I have it at least once a week. One of my favorites is Wild Rice Soup. This version is a vegan/vegetarian dish replacing the chicken with mushrooms. I fill it with vegetables and three types of beans giving it a healthy dose of protein and nutrients. Hot, hearty, and delicious, perfect for a cold winter night. Go ahead and flag it now—it’s sure to become a favorite.

HOW TO EAT SOUP: “Soup is always served for the first course, and it should be eaten with dessert spoons, and taken from the sides, not the tips, of them, without any sound of the lips, and not sucked into the mouth audibly from the ends of the spoon. Bread should not be broken into soup or gravy. Never ask to be helped to soup a second time. the hostess may ask you to take a second plate, but you will politely decline.” 😉
