This was a very easy soup to make since I did it the lazy way and didn't sauté all the veggies first save the garlic and onion. I simply coarsely chopped up all the veggies and tossed them into stock. This is a large soup as I like to freeze some for later.

I'm in school. Yes. I've started an internet based nutrition program. It means I can continue my education and get certified in something I already kind of do informally while still mostly stuck at home while I continue recovering. It's fun and I'm happy I can do it.

It can also be made with meat or just veggies. This recipe is all veggie, except for the broth which can be either veggie or meat based.
I got the below recipe, which I've now modified a bit, from a great friend in an email. She knows me well...that email made my day!
