Warm, yet bright and colorful, this is the perfect soup transition from winter to spring. It's so thick and creamy that it can even be spread on a thick, rustic bread for a unique sandwich. While this soup is delicious on its own, if you want to lighten it, add a swirl of coconut or almond yogurt, and for added crunch throw in some pistachios.
