Fall Harvest Soup

Eileen Hineline


I love soup and make it whenever I can and love new flavors to try. I found this recipe along with picture on the AllRecipes web site.
I am sharing it with you. I love the color of the soup and just the list of ingredients tells me this is so delicious! Why wait until cooler weather to enjoy this soup?
I say make it today and enjoy a bowl with some crusty bread, mmm so good.
