The wonderful thing about this is the rather vague quantities required; I tend to just make it up as I go along so please forgive my not-quite-precise measurements.This freezes really well, so I normally divide it into individual portions so I can stash it handily in the deep freeze to take to work. If you're feeling naughty, a swirl of soured cream is delicious stirred into the soup.
