This soup is easy, almost fat-free (with no added oil or butter), 100% vegetarian, and 100% tasty. It's my own concoction based on my own "Basic Vegetable Soup." I'm giving the ingredients I used, but you can substitute ingredients that you prefer. I like to have Butternut Squash soup in the winter, but I think it's great and healthy any time of year. I used 1/2 of a butternut squash because I used the other half to make "Potato-free French Fries."
