Non-Traditional Flour Soup
Happy Thursday, Soupers! Ever heard of Basel Flour Soup? Me either until we were looking for some inspiration, as today is a holiday! But, we made some changes to that soup, and added black lentils, meatballs, a wee bit of nutmeg and topped with olive oil, yogurt and arugula micro greens. And you know what? It was soooo good!
