This is a soup I like to make when I need to cleanup the refrigerator. I rarely add any kind of meat to the soup.Often times have a meat sandwich with the soup or none at all.This soup is good with cornbread,cheese toast or crackers. I think what makes this soup really good is to not cook the vegetables too much,you don't want mushy veg soup! Cook until tender. I sometimes add a few pieces of tofu in individual serving bowls(my husband doesn't like it) or add shredded cheese . Cook time depends on how many vegetables you're cooking.
