Hearty Winter Soup

Here’s my recipe for Hearty Winter soup (named after this episode of Frasier). I use no-salt added or low sodium canned products to control the sodium content. I like making this soup because there’s not much preparation involved and I can smell it cooking while I watch TV or read a book. It’s good for low energy/sick/depression days, if it’s a day when I just want to rest I’ll make it in the morning and have it for lunch and dinner. Sometimes the vegetables vary, I’ve tried it with bok choy or sweet potato, sometimes I add a can of garbanzo beans. It usually lasts me for three days, depending on how many bowls I have.
