Here’s an easy, delicious, healthy soup recipe to try: Easy Vegetable Soup
I’ve been on a mission to make soup once a week– every single week– this winter! This week I made a very easy vegetable soup- with mostly fresh vegetables inside. There’s a bit of potato in there, so it turns out to be filling. I love eating soup for lunch every day!
Top it with a little Parmesan cheese, and it’s just perfect. Make a pot at the beginning of the week and you’ll have an easy lunch to eat every single day of the week!
