'Soup Queen' of Kaslo shares her secrets

On Friday, Daybreak got the conversation brewing about favourite chilly-weather soups, thanks to Soup Sister, Jennifer Schell.

That prompted your recipes and suggestions for B.C.'s best soups -- including this email from Marianne Johnstone:
Kaslo has our very own soup expert. 
Hannah runs Sunnyside Naturals and always has a pot of soup on the go, very often with the most alluring aroma. 
She serves it up with a "wagel" and her own special veggie butter.
What surprised me most when I first discovered this gem was that her soup is always vegetarian, no wheat no dairy and she has so many great combinations, some with curry, some with garden herbs. 
If you pass by on an empty stomache you can't resist the waft of warm, comforting goodness. 
Also included, at no charge is a kind word or sometimes a bit of sage advice.
She's my very favourite "queen of soup".

So host Chris Walker phoned up Hana Culen, the "Soup Queen of Kaslo," and convinced her to share some of her secrets.
