This soup was delicious!!!!! I loved the little kick that the cayenne pepper gave it! I made different croutons with fresh herbs; but I didn't even care about the croutons once I started eating this. My husband doesn't usually care for meatless menus, but he raved about the soup as well. Thank you for the recipe!
