Note: When I make this soup, our kiddos love the soup but are NOT fans of the gremolata. So, instead, top their soups with a sprinkle of nutty parmesan or straight-up nutritional yeast!
Garlic Note: I like the punch of garlic added to the end of this soup. But, if you prefer to cook the garlic, simply add it earlier in the cooking along with the onion and celery, taking care not to let it scorch. You can use 2 cloves if cooking earlier as the flavor will mellow with cooking.
