This is from a veg cookbook purchased on the checkout lane at the grocery store but I'm not sure which. It is a lovely soup, and it gets better over a day or so. The ingredient list appears lengthy, but it is largely due to the yummy combination of spices. The original recipe calls for a combination of any veggies as long as you reach 4 cups (or a 16 oz bag of frozen veggies). I list specific veggies here as they are the ones recommended in the recipe.
