Another soup recipe. I cannot believe how good this is.. I made this at 10 pm, as I am wont to do, but it was too good to pass up so I had my first bowl of it at 11.30 at night. Ridiculous. I took suggestions from several recipes and hacked it all together. Some vegetarian recipes suggest using veggie bacon, but I skipped that (have you seen the ingredient list on premade fake meat? scary..) in favor of a bit of liquid smoke. The smoke plus the cloves and mustard give this an unnervingly convincing ham flavor.
