Hearty Vegetable Soup

When the weather is cold, I head to the kitchen to make some warm meal options for my family. I love this recipe because you can eat it for dinner and still have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow! It’s also a healthy way to get your daily intake of vegetables without eating a chilly salad. Hope it leaves you feeling warm and satisfied, too!
