  3. Fill the blender to the one-liter mark with 1/2 chicken broth and 1/2 vegetable broth. You can eyeball the amount here :) Also to the blender, add 1 tsp pure maple syrup, 3/4 tsp of nutmeg, and 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper. Blend until smooth. Add mixture to a saucepan and heat.
  4. Taste and season with salt and pepper (I used a pinch of sea salt and a couple grinds of the pepper). For the super smooth consistency, add 1/4 cup Greek yogurt to your soup. Heat through and serve!
