Being lactose intolerant, I was looking for a soup that would suit me. This soup is so rich and delicious, you would think that it was made with lots of milk or heavy cream. But to the contrary, it is chock full of flavor and made without the dairy products. Warm and delicious, it can be used as an appetizer or can be a great lunch with the addition of a salad and a piece of whole grain bread.
