This soup is so good and mild. Not only is it easy, it's healthy! If you're trying to cut down on salt, in cooking, this is a perfect soup for you to make!

It's sodium free and virtually moistureless (so add approximately 1 cup of water, when warming it up on the stove.) Anyway, I wanted to make some soup, and this classic recipe was the one, for which I had everything needed.

Note: If there appears to be two of this recipe, it's because I had to re-log in in order to submit it, then start over, to complete the process.
