This very thick soup makes a hearty meal. Increase the number of servings by adding a scoop of hot cooked brown or white rice to each bowl. The recipe comes from Clare Briggs from Northumberland County. Clare says that this is a great cook-ahead and heat-up dinner — and anyone who has tried the soup agrees.
