Warm up with a bowl of hot, delicious Kitchen Sink Soup! This hearty, healthy vegetable soup is simple to make and packed with veggies!
I was about to run out the door yesterday, when I stopped to check the weather. It was in the 50's so I grabbed my jacket and headed out.
Fall weather is finally here, and I'm so happy about it! I love this time of year, when a light jacket and sweater are just enough to keep me warm.
There's nothing better than spending these days outside, kicking my boots through colorful leaves (still waiting on those), and enjoying the crisp, sunny weather.
I love returning home after a long day, cheeks rosy from the cold, to a hot bowl of this Kitchen Sink Soup ... it's the perfect end to a chilly day!
Kitchen Sink Soup
This "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" Soup is simple to make and chock full of healthy vegetables.
It's a great way to clear out your fridge and use up odds and ends of veggies. I used some of my favorite vegetables, but feel free to make substitutions depending on what you have on hand ... cabbage, roots vegetables, leftover frozen veggies, or fall squash (butternut would be delicious) would all work.
This Kitchen Sink Vegetable Soup will warm you up this fall and beyond (I won't mention the "w" word quite yet!).
