Some days it's nice to have some type of recipe that helps use up any left over vegetables in your fridge. I love this soup because it is that kind of a recipe! Every time this soup turns out slightly different and it is healthy too.
If you like you can also spice it up with adding some of your favourite spices or I would imagine that chili would give it a delicious kick too if you enjoy spicy food.
Plus how beautiful can a nice hot bowl of soup be on a cold winter day to warm up the body and soul.
Not too long ago I read somewhere that soups are some of the most nourishing foods or dishes for the body. I think that alone is reason enough to give this soup a go and make it your own! Let me know with what interesting flavours and creations you come up with!
The one in the picture was made with broccoli, one of my many favourites.
