We found the original of this recipe in the 2008 Taste of Home Heartwarming Soups cookbook, then made several changes to it, using more vegetables & making it strictly vegetarian!

I thought this was absolutely terrific! I made two very small changes ~ I did add a little more salt and also fresh Thyme, because I had it in my garden.

This is very colorful and delicious. I wasn't sure what type of peas to use, so I just grabbed some that I had put up this summer, crowder peas, and added those to the recipe. I did add some salt at serving, but if you are used to salt-free cooking, I'm sure you'd be happy with the soup without it. I loved how you could taste the flavors of each individual vegetable.
