Recipe: Easy Vegetable Tomato Soup

A versatile recipe full of veggie goodness

Bowl of tomato and vegetable soup.

Soup is a great way to use leftover veggies. Any vegetables you have on hand will work in this recipe, so feel free to get creative! Use the half-empty bags of frozen vegetables, the last handful of baby carrots or the leftover tomatoes you chopped for taco night. It’s a party of flavors, and all veggies are welcome.
