Hello! I know so many people are requesting my recipes on my Instagram. I’m so sorry that I am not able to be quicker. Life is fairly busy for me as I am a new-ish mama to this precious lil girl. Miss Pepper Marie is almost 9 months old, is a olympic gold medalist at fighting sleep when she is exhausted, and she’s teething. I’m not complaining. I love her with my whole heart. It makes for slow recipe writing, blog updating, and food making.
Please bare with me. I promise. We are creating something super special here. My goal is to get at least one recipe tested, written, photographed, and posted weekly. We’ll see how that all goes. Haha!
This is a total work in progress.
Now, for this soup. oh my gracious is it good. You can really play around with it when it comes to the added veggies. I was going to add spinach in this as well, but I sorta forgot it. It’s kind of almost a ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ type of soup.
It’s delicious, nutritious, and EASY. what more could you ask for? I mean, really.
ONE AND A HALF CUPS IS ONLY 4 SMART POINTS! I love to pair it with bread, and some more bread because I don’t feel guilty about it. I hope y’all love it as much as me!
