    …I recently had this soup prepared for me by my sister…what a treat!!! It is tasty and filling and total surprise as a combination of ingredients…my only suggestion would be to add the jicama a little sooner to allow it to warm through more evenly!!! A great lunch soup though…and works well with our Weight Watchers Points Program!!!
