Vegetable Soup Recipe

Vegetable-Soup-Recipe-1

When is the best time for a great vegetable soup recipe? Perhaps on a lazy Sunday drive you couldn’t resist the urge to stop by that quaint little roadside produce stand. Maybe the uniform vegetable stacks in your local grocery store of the beautifully colored vegetables put a spell on you. You couldn’t ignore the reds, purples, green, yellows and oranges.

It’s later and those gorgeous vegetables aren’t so pretty anymore. You need to prepare them now before they expire. Vegetable soup is the perfect way to help you clean out that vegetable bin, while preparing a tasty, healthy meal for you and those around you to enjoy.
