This soup was created on New Year’s Day 2004. It is very simple to make and can be done within an hour and a half.
Place 2 tablespoons water into large soup pot. Add onion, garlic and celery. Stir and saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Add remaining 4 cups water and the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Bring to a slow boil. Lower heat and simmer for one hour, covered.
