Green Soup

This soup comes from my friend Kate. They call it Green Soup because of the pretty green color it takes on the day after it's made. It's a Mulligatawny of sorts - without the lentils - and I think this version is absolutely perfect. My kids thought so, too. I can tell you this; if you have a cold right now, this would certainly kick it right out of you, in the most delicious way. It was so quick to cook that I'll be making often here.

This is a great soup, I saved a recipe from the newspaper years ago for one very similar. Apparently it has a Pennsylvania Dutch origin. How wonderful to find this version, I must try it.
