READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by VegInTexas

This is a delicious soup my grandmother used to make. It is Polish for "soup of nothing" because it is made entirely of veggies. Very good, and very inexpensive. Great for winter!

I have made this many times and it never gets old! My bf and I love to throw this together when $$$ is a little tight or there isn't much around the house.
