This is the soup I eat when I feel run down and under the weather.  If I feel a cold coming on, this is what’s on the menu!  It consists of every vegetable I try to keep in the refrigerator, so it is vitamin and mineral-rich.  It can be made with ANY vegetables you may have on-hand.  Fresh herbs make this soup come alive, and the hearty goodness brings my vitality back.
