1/2
cup apple juice
1/2
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2
teaspoon paprika
3

Tips  

For a crunchy texture with this smooth soup, add bagel chips, pita chips or oyster crackers. Adding a green salad that includes beans, tomatoes and a sprinkling of cheese, along with a whole-grain breadstick or roll, makes a satisfying meal.
