Mother-in-law Soup

Teresa Jacobson


Technically this is a hearty vegetable soup but I gave it this name because it's my wonderful mother-in-law who gave me this very easy recipe. I didn't use to be much of a veggie eater but when my MIL made this soup I became a believer! I swear I heard a tabernacle choir singing when I ate this for the first time! You can add meat to this if you want but I like it with just the veggies! That's coming from someone that use to only ever eat one vegetable...french fries!
** Great for Low Purine diet if omit mushrooms, add leek, and use vegetable broth. Also try adding cooked vegetable pasta.
