  • Add the vinegar.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning. Add salt, chili and vinegar to taste.
  • Mix well and serve. (Always mix before taking a portion of the pot.)
  • Serve with roasted pumpkin seeds or croutons; Paprika, chili powder or cinnamon and also sour cream.
  • The soup tastes better when it is not boiling hot.

@shain -- This looks wonderful, and I've saved the recipe. One question -- I'm not familiar with using parsley root. In the event I can't find it, is there anything I can substitute?
