Simple Soup for Maundy Thursday

As we celebrate Holy Week, we thought you might like to join together virtually for a no-frills, yet hearty meal. If you’ve celebrated Maundy Thursday service in the past with us or participated in a mission trip in the 1990’s, you should be familiar with this simple and delicious soup.

If you are like many of us, you are cleaning out your cupboards and freezer, maybe you have these ingredients on-hand already. If you do not have these ingredients on-hand, that's okay. Please do not go out to the store for these specific supplies instead, make a simple meal with what you have on-hand. The idea is to enjoy a meal together before gathering on Thursday, April 9 at 7 pm for Maundy Thursday Worship Service.

This recipe will make enough for 8 servings. You can cut it half. It also freezes great too.
