Delicious and easy vegetable soup recipe

I’ve been making this simple vegetable soup for years. It is pretty basic, but packed with healthful flavor and nothing can beat a hot bowl of soup with some sourdough bread on a cold winter evening. The veggies are up to you, but the aromatics used (onion, celery, carrot) are essential for the flavor profile and are the basis of almost all French sauces and broths.
