Kitchen Sink Soup


This kitchen sink soup can be served as-is or puréed and served with croutons on top. It's great for supper on a cold night. If you want a thicker soup, use more vegetables — we like to add a lot! You can really let your imagination get carried away with this soup. I don't make it the same every time. It depends on what leftover veggies are in my fridge. Add meat or chicken if desired. Serve hot with buttered biscuits.
