Garden Vegetable Soup with Cheese Tortellini

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

I make this soup every spring, from store bought veggies, and watch my garden grow into the next batch. Feel free to add a touch of curry paste or miso to change the soup if you like. Another option is to use vegetable or chicken broth in place of the beef broth.
