Delicious and Soothing Root Vegetable Soup


Nothing cures the sniffles better than a delicious bowl of home cooked soup.  Imagine my delight when my 14 year old who was a bit under the weather sampled this soup and exclaimed “Mom this soup is so good!”  and promptly asked for a second serving.

I was please to see a flush of color return to her cheeks as she seemed to regain a little energy.

This delicious soup is filled with health boosting nutrients and wonderfully soothing when you’re craving some of that good old comfort food.
