Recipe by A Messy Cook

Healthy and delicious. Serve this simple soup for lunch, or pair it with bread and cheese for a light supper.

I loved the simplicity of this recipe yet it yield a tasty filling soup. I did not puree mine after simmering them for 15 minutes. I'll add some chopped ham into DH's bowl the next time I make this recipe. Made for *My 3 Chefs Fall 2008* game for my Theme: *FALL is SOUP TIME*
