My friend Rachael told me about a soup she had at a diner in the Tacoma area. Of course, the foodie that I am, I was intrigued. After a couple attempts, I rendered this delicious, slightly sweet creation. It was perfect on a chilly December evening! I have no idea if it is like the soup Rachael had, or even similar, but I know it is good! I hope you enjoy!
