Hemp Seed Soup

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is an incredibly old recipe that I adapted from and old Latin text. Measurements were originally listed by weight, but I rounded them to approximate volumes. Either way, they are super flexible as it is a soup, so adjust however you like."

My husband is not a fan of cilantro, so I used thyme with the bay leaf instead. Loved it!
