Vegetable Soup

September 19, 2019

There is nothing like a warm bowl of soup on a cool fall day. Soup is so comforting and when it is packed with a bunch of veggies, you can feel really good about eating it too. This soup is very simple to make and easy to customize for your own family. The ingredients here are what I like but you may want to add or substitute other vegetables like onion, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, kale, broccoli, etc. You can also switch up the protein and/or grain for quinoa, pasta, lentils or your favourite beans. The quantity of vegetables is up to you as well. I like my soup to be quite hearty but if you prefer more broth, add broth or put in fewer vegetables – depending on how big of a batch you want. Just make sure to adjust your seasonings. I like to make a big pot so I can be eating it for a few days. So play around with this recipe and make it your own.
