There’s nothing better than a piping hot bowl of homemade soup on a cold day

During the winter months I find myself having soup almost every day for lunch. Amy’s Organic  makes amazing canned soup, my cupboard is literally stuffed with them. However, there really is no substitute for real homemade soup, made with fresh organic vegetables.

The base for this soup is a broth made by pureeing tender asparagus and garlic, and then potato, carrot, onion, zucchini and spices are added. What a delicious way to eat your vegetables!
