At this time of the year, we all expect cold weather, making soup even more appealing! Our fall this year was rather warm, but it’s never too warm for an easy, nutritious soup. Sometimes I put together a quick and hearty soup using leftovers, and that’s one of the reasons I love leftovers. Other times I spend a little more energy, as I see some soups as a ‘meal in a bowl’ with a good balance of ingredients and nutrients! It sure beats anything from a can! And you can often convert vegetarian recipes to suit non-vegetarian palates or serve your soup with a side of meat.
