This recipe comes to us via Choosing Raw, one of the most popular and charming food blogs on the web. Gena is of Greek heritage, and this recipe is her vegan version of traditional Greek Easter Soup. This soup is usually made with chicken and eggs, but here tahini, miso, and lemon are featured to give body and flavor to this cozy, comforting soup.
