A Simple Soup

Having soup sometimes brings back vivid memories…… of warmth, comfort, and nourishment. A simple soup can be a bowl of goodness that satisfies the senses and soothes the soul. It may not be fancy or elaborate, but it’s the perfect food for a cold or dreary day, or when you need a quick and easy meal. A classic vegetable soup is a great example of a simple soup that is both healthy and delicious.

You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, such as carrots, celery, onions, and potatoes, and simmer them in a pot of broth until they’re tender. Add some herbs and spices for flavor, and you have a hearty soup that’s perfect for lunch or dinner. Another simple soup that’s easy to make is chicken noodle soup.
