Lately I have been trying to incorporate more vegetarian and vegan meals into our rotation. The problem? I live with a hardcore meat eater. Vegetarian meals even bulked up with pasta or grains usually get a sideways stare and slew of questions about whether or not, this is all we are eating? However given my innate stubborn streak, I can’t just throw in the towel.<i> Although truth be told there is always a rotisserie chicken close by in case I fail. Real life.</i>

Surprisingly this simple meal passed the test recently. I was shocked. It was just soup, salad, and bread. However since this soup is incredibly hearty, it makes a delicious meatless meal that even your most dedicated meat eater just might enjoy.
