I love vegetable soups. I save all types of greens that others might discard, clean, cut, blanch and then freeze the pieces until I feel it is a "soup day" and take them out when needed. This recipe uses the broccoli florettes, peeled and chopped stems and cauliflower greens (if I have them) but I have made this with frozen veggies and it's still yummy. I have served this both hot and cold.
