    A great but mild vegetarian soup. I would switch in a sweeter winter squash, like kabocha.

    Move over chicken soup, there's a new feel good soup in town. I added 1T ginger for added heat to combat the cold outside

    i decided to make this with lentils instead of cannellini beans, and it turned out delicious. i just added extra broth to make up for the amount of liquid the lentils would soak up.. i also cooked this with a bay leaf, and for about an hour to make sure the lentils cooked through. definitely recommend.
