Hearty Root Veggie Soup

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Annacia

For a simple dinner, present this flavorful and healthful soup with some warm crusty bread and a mixed green salad. I have added a can of white kidney beans (undrained) in the last 5 mins for that bit extra.

Delicious soup and very adaptable too! I used the ingredients called for but in various quanties and also used half beef broth and 1/2 vegetable broth. I also used and immersion blender to puree the soup, leaving some chunks of veggies. Delish! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
