vegetable (and more vegetables) soup

If there are two things the Jones family loves in the winter, it’s vegetables and soup.  We like veggies because, well, they’re healthy.  And soup, there’s just something about soup on a cold winter day.  It’s even better if you can combine the two: vegetable soup.

With all of the New Year resolutions for healthy eating and the after effects of a winter storm (3+ inches of snow in VA), today is the perfect day for a warm bowl of soup.  This vegetable soup is easy and packed with such healthy goodness that you can go back for seconds (or thirds).

  1. This looks great, I’m trying everything I can to get my husband (and me) to eat more vegetables so we can set a good example as our new baby gets older!

  2. That soup looks amazing! My fiancé and I are BIG fans of a good veggie soup.
