Wonderful fall weather soup! We have it for supper with bread and butter and we're stuffed! Leftovers freeze well, just add about a cup of broth when you reheat it.
- Saute the onions, garlic and potatoes in a little bit of the broth for about 5 minutes or till softened.
- Add everything else and cook for about 45 minutes.
- Take out bay leaves before serving!
