Healthy, delicious, and fast are the three things that every busy mom looks for when deciding what to have for dinner. This soup is so full of flavor and healthy ingredients, not to mention stunning to look at. The vibrant colors of the vegetables made the kids want to dig in.
The classic flavors of the carrots, onions, garlic and celery finished off with the vegetable stock, tomatoes and bay leaf really make for a full flavored dish. Aside from being delicious, this soup is full of B- vitamins, protein and fiber, which makes this soup so healthy and incredibly satisfying.
My one complaint is that we wanted more! The recipe only makes about 4 servings, and I had 2 bowls myself! If you and your family are big soup eaters, I would highly recommend doubling the recipe, so you can go back for seconds and thirds. The cookbook says that to make it a meal, serve the soup with a cheese twist on the side. We ended up making grilled cheese, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the classic combo.
