If you have been here before and looked around the Cooking Class catagory, you can probably guess that I love soup. What’s not to love….one pot, easy ingredients, no REAL measuring and LOTS of leftovers.
Take this recipe and make it your own…if you don’t care for edamame, substitute with a bean you do like, frozen or canned. Don’t like tomatoes? Leave ’em out. You really like ham…swap out the chicken for it.
For those of you that requested the recipe, here you go!
