This is probably my husband's favorite recipe. The whole family loves it. Highly recommend!

I use a heaping tablespoon of cajun seasoning blend in place of pepper/ spices (2 T each of garlic powder, Italian seasoning, paprila,1 T each of black pepper, cayenne pepper, dried thyme, onion powder. Mix well.)

I would like to cook all these meals with oinions , but one person in my household is allergic to oinions, green oinions, leeks , chives ect. What can I use instead? Thanks.

Water saute the onions separately so you can have soup without onions for the person with the allergy. 

Prepare the soup, as described, without the onion.  Water saute the chopped onion in a small pan.

Split the soup with a non onion portion and and regular portion with onions, with appropriate sizes.  Add the water sauteed onions to the regular portion and enjoy.  Just a small adjustment for a wonderful soup.

Absolutely delicious!  Paired it with a dandelion, romain and tomato salad drizzled with lemon juice. Tons of flavor!

This has become my favorite soup for many reasons. Easy to prepare, filling like you can’t believe, and so creamy tasty! I always add more mushrooms. It is good with wheat berries but we like it best with wild rice.

This Soup is FANTASTIC! I used wheatberries as in the menu.  My 24 yo daughter said "Mom- this is next level!"  My husband and sister (non- nutritarian) loved it too! She wanted to lick the bowl....I was thinking it reminds me a little of stroganoff. Definitely a keeper and will make it again and again.

Very tasty soup.  Really creamy and rich.  Used wild rice.  I also used cgc704's spice additions as I like things spicy -- might cut down the pepper a smidge next time.

Try to cook one small potato with skin in a medium pot with 1 green onion and a pinch of pepper. Once is cooked remove the skin and blend with the hemps seeds, the white beans and the cup of vegetable stock.

My husband and I both liked this soup; however, the wheat berries were still chewy even after an extra 15-20 minutes of simmering. The flavor is mild, but very nice on a wintry evening. Next time I will use wild rice; I'm sure we will enjoy it more that way.
