Soup with crusty breadOne of my close friends lives in Iceland, and he's given me some wonderful recipes over the years. I used one of his Icelandic stew recipes to come up with this soup and he's given me his stamp of approval. It is super hearty and delicious, and is so comforting on these chilly days. I like it with a squeeze of lemon and some crusty bread.
