Vegetable Soup

Soup is generally a warm food that is made by combining ingredients such as meat and vegetables with stock, juice, water, or another  liquid.  There are a few different kinds of soup such as  clear soups, bisque, and chowder. Soups are similar to stews but have more liquid in them.

You can add grains, rice and lentils and paste to make it more filling.

When I was growing up, we only used fresh vegetables.  We did not have frozen foods. If we had to use beans and peas when they were not in season, we would use dried beans, soaking them overnight and boiling them in the morning and then using them. You can add any vegetable of your choice for this soup.
