Very Veggie Vegetable Soup

23 years ago hubby and i were honeymooning in gatlinburg, tenessee and ate at a restaurant called the brass lantern. we had trout and a vegetable soup that was "peppery" according to the hubby. this is my best re-creation of that soup.......personally i try to keep the starchy veggies out as i found out from a dietician that vegetable soup was considered a carb heavy soup due to peas, potatoes, beans.....feel free to add these to your own taste!
