Galician Soup with a Twist

With Arden recently back from Spain, I had been thinking of making a hearty fall spin on classic Galician soup. This soup is perfect for cooler days and pairs well with a crisp Chardonnay. Most of the ingredients you will probably already have in your pantry, which make it an easy choice when you are a bit pressed for time!
