I created this simple soup after I got braces put on my teeth and was having trouble chewing, but still wanted to keep my veggie intake up. I keep eating it now because it has become a personal favorite. :) It comes together quickly and I sometimes make a double batch and reheat it throughout the week whenever I need a quick bite.
