Hearty Veggie Soup

Hearty Veggie Soup combines a wealth of colors and flavors to leave you feeling warm and cozy. If you can’t find a low-sodium option, or prefer a brand of regular veggie broth, try diluting 3:1 with water to reduce the sodium content.

Try serving with my Sweet Potato Corn Muffins.
