Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup

Quick and easy vegetable soup is a perfect first course, light lunch, or anytime snack.

The Backstory: This delicious quick and easy vegetable soup is a combination of vegetable soup and cabbage soup and one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make. Having made this soup with different veggie combinations over the years (basically, whatever I have on hand in my fridge), I still find ways to add or change ingredients. I have even added pasta or diced potatoes now and then. However this recipe, is all veggies. Frozen vegetables can be substituted to cut down on the prep time, and you can also add shredded chicken, rice, or whatever leftovers you have that you want to make good use of. However you make this, I know you will find this soup to be one of your go-to-recipes.
