This is the easiest soup recipe! You can use whatever you have on hand. I start all soups with onions, garlic, carrots, & celery. Then add a pound of meat, frozen veggies (or canned), broth ( or water) and seasoning! This recipe is so forgiving and adaptable! I’d love to hear your favorite version!
