With fall right around the corner, I have been inspired to start bringing out my
soup recipes. Soup is a great way to have a healthy, inexpensive meal, feed a lot of people, or have leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day! This is a great soup for the crockpot...can't get any easier then that!
Some like this soup without the vegetables, I like putting vegetables in things wherever I can, to make a healthy, well rounded meal. If you want to skip the chopping, they make a bag of frozen chopped vegetables for soup, it works great!
It can be whatever vegetables you have on hand. Just keep in mind to always stay away from canned vegetables. They have hardly any nutritional value left in them, and usually are full of sodium and preservatives. Frozen are sometimes even better then fresh, depending on the season.
I would love to hear from you! Enjoy!
