The perfect comfort food on a rainy day or chilly winter’s night, this Rustic Veggie Soup is a colorful rainbow of healthy, savory flavor. This simply scrumptious soup makes it easy to enjoy your veggies, especially when you toss in some leftover roast chicken or pulled pork. Or one of my personal favorites, leftover spicy grilled shrimp. (Wowie, it’s so good!)
Bonus, it’s so easy to make! All it takes is a little chopping and simmering, and in less than 30 minutes, “Soups On!” To save time, I like to use pre-cut butternut squash. My local Trader Joe’s has adorable crinkle-cut butternut squash that makes the dish even more appealing. I also use pre-cut organic kale; a big bag from Costco makes it easy to use for this recipe and more!
