Review from followers:

I made this soup last night….added some green beans and a bit of cabbage (end of garden produce!!). It was delicious. The flavor was so good. I’ve already passed it on to our four grown children. Thank you.

Really easy soup to make. Used a few more different veggies that I had on hand turned out great. perfect for a cold day.
