    PrincessSarahNP's Note:

    This soup is so flavorful the first bite made my husband moan. It is chocked full of veggies with every bite. My kids eat every last drop, and often ask for more. Each taste is full of flavor, no one would ever guess it is so healthy for you. It is a great way to use up those garden vegetables in the summer, or make a cold winter day cozy and delectable. For those who are more timid, just scale back on the spices. We eat it with crusty bread sliced with butter, and some freshly sliced mango on the side to add a hint of sweet to the meal. This soup is easy to prepare, and freezes well for quick dinners later. Enjoy!
