A Bowl of Soup For Spring Time

It all began when my sister requested a soup "with lots of vegetables" for me to prepare. I took inventory of all the veggies in my fridge and freezer and saw a wide variety available for me to use for the soup. With spring time comes bounty of vegetables for one to use. I did not use a lot but just a little bit of this and that added up to over 3 quart soup. I think on the whole I used 10 plus veggies and it was very hearty and delicious for a cold spring night. Must say it was so easy and was done in a jiffy.
