Soup with favorite veggies. Don't let the number of ingredients scare you, use what you have! That's what I did.All veggies are cut up bite sizeAll seasoning measurements are approximate & to tasteIf you use canned or frozen veggies, you can shorten the cooking times since they are somewhat pre-cooked.All seasonings shown are dried measurements, not fresh herbs.I made CousCous to go with it, but Barley or rice would be great.
