Sometimes only soup will do. This recipe is perfect alongside a salad, as a wintry-inspired side to a meaty main, or best yet, solo on a cozy night. Filling, hearty … but not heavy. It comes together with little prep in about an hour, less if you opt out of adding the rind. Although, I highly recommend investing in this flavor-enhancing step — think of it as culinary upcycling.
