The vegetables were all fresh from my garden; if you do not have these varieties, please replace with your favorite variety. But please, please, please do not skip the carrot tops. You will be pleasantly surprised! Reminiscent of French Onion Soup. Feel free to load up on fresh herbs. Lovely lavender or purple basil would be divine.
