This easy and delectable Vegetable Soup is a wholesome nutritional meal that you can pull together in about forty minutes with many ingredients that you may already have on hand. This tasty soup is the perfect pick me up for the winter blahs and for those with the sniffles. I love to serve it with grilled cheese sandwiches, Garlic Knots or Cornbread. For a super hearty meal serve with Grilled Meatloaf Sandwiches.
