Sounds delicious, but think I'd eliminate the "pinch" of salt - it is such a small amount I'm sure it will taste great without it. I also am not fond of bay leaf or clove - so I will experiment without them.

If you're lucky enough to have leftovers of this flavor-bursting soup, it is actually better the next day
