Happy Friday friends!
It has been awhile since I have shared a recipe, so wanted to share this easy and quick vegetable soup that we love making during the cold months. This soup is easy to make and my entire family loves it! BTW…the picture doesn’t do it justice. 😉

Vegetarian option-exclude ground meat. *Check cans for BPA FREE, NO Salt added, and if you are wanting more of a *clean recipe, check vegetable cans for no added ingredients.

My mom would make this soup all the time in the winter while we were growing up! It was such a comfort food. I hope it will bring you a little comfort during these chilly months.
Happy Clean Cooking!
