A very hearty meal that is truly tasty. And for those fighting disease, it contains a number of vital immune boosting nutrients. The recipe makes quite a lot of soup. Feel free to cut the amounts called for in half or even quarter it if you want to make a smaller amount. Put some in the freezer to reheat when you don't have to time to make something from scratch. Due to most people's busy work and famil8y schedules, having ready-to-eat meals on hand will help you be successful in your vegan journey so you don't give in to hunger and grab some fast food. Add more pepper to boost the spiciness, and reduce the amount of nut butter to make the dish less rich.
