Thick, hearty and full of flavor, this soup is a perfect winter supper. Although it’s great straight off the stove, it’s even tastier when prepared ahead and refrigerated overnight. Excess fat will rise to the top during storage, and can be skimmed away before heating for a lighter, healthier meal.
