1/2 Cup Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by dianegrapegrower

I make soup like this based on what's freshest, and what I have on hand. More of a technique than a real recipe, but always light and satisfying. You can use more ingredients than specified, but will need more broth, too.

I was miserable with a cold and made this "comfort" soup. Added 1/2 tsp celery salt and 1/2 tsp thyme and a 1/2 cup of V8 juice. Perfecto! I feel so much better. Thanks.
