What a great "mixed" soup. I started by following the recipe and ended up throwing in nearly everything in my fridge--celery, whole carrots, anything I could find. The broth itself is really versatile and allows you to mix in whatever you want. I got so carried away adding--it was starting to look like a stew--so I added an extra 4 cups of water with one or two beef bullion cubes to keep the flavor. Cooked with brown rice I had left over from another recipe. Loved it! Will make again!
This was simple and delicious. It will definitely become a "cook ahead" lunch special for me.
