On warm winter nights home made vegetable soup is especially enjoyable. It is a delicious and an easy way to add healthy vegetables to one’s diet. It can be enjoyed as a main meal or side dish. Adding meat broth will increase the nutrition of this meal. Chicken broth can be saved and frozen from chicken crock pot meals, to be used in this recipe. See Simple, delicious crock pot pastured chicken for an easy recipe.
