Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup
Probably one of the best soup recipes I've come across. This was excellent as is. Topped with feta cheese as suggested and served with a salad and some multigrain bread. Fantastic! Will definitely make again..and often!! Thank you!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
In a word: sensational! I love the perfect tomato basil soup and this fit the bill in terms of flavor and richness. I don't care about the whipping cream and butter, some things are just worth it. And this soup is!
