There are so many things I love about soup.

It’s great for lunch, dinner and always nice as a healthy snack.

This simple root vegetable soup recipe is quick and easy enough for me to prepare after a day of work.

It’s therapeutic to me when I’m cutting up vegetable and that’s really what this recipe is about.

Nice hearty root vegetables with easy to find chicken or vegetable stock to bring this soup together.

You’ll see in the directions, the carrots and onions have been roasted in the oven for a short time. This is an important step to bring out the natural sweetness in them.

Once you make this soup, it’s sure to become a family favorite in your home like it is in mine.

Don’t forget to serve with some nice crusty bread, you don’t want to miss one drop and the best part is soaking up the bottom of the soup bowl with some crusty bread.
