I have been making this for years and it's the only soup packed with nutrients I've been able to get kids to eat and even ask for a second bowl. Each time you make this soup it will be a little different. Add more or less of a vegetable and you can mix and match with other vegetables not listed. It freezes well so you can take along to work for lunch weeks later with a nice chunk of bread. Enjoy!
