Storage Suggestion: Make the soup days in advance and then heat it up in a pot or in the microwave when desired. It stays fresh for many days in the fridge and tastes exactly the same tastes exactly the same doing this as when it is freshly made.  You can also make a lot of it, freeze it, and eat it when desired.

Serving Suggestions: Eat with parmesan cheese on top or croutons. You can also add some brown rice or barley to it for a more filling meal.
