Today I want to share with you my recipe for delicious and relatively low-sodium vegetable soup. I really love soup, and now that it’s getting pretty chilly outside, all I want to do is curl up and eat all the soups!
Typically, I’m someone who just throws ingredients into a pot and hopes for the best, but my family has recently made some diet changes, so I wanted to make a pretty healthy vegetable soup that’s also really tasty and satisfying — so I put this together! I hope you enjoy! Let me know if you give it a try!
