This soup is healthy and delicious all in one comforting bowl. It’s also vegan and gluten-free!
My name is Lauren and I eat soups all year long.
There I said it. Yes, some people think it’s strange to eat a bowl of hot soup when it’s 80 degrees out. Not me. Bring it on! I prefer soup with vegetables in there. Lots and lots of vegetables. Add some pasta, rice or quinoa and I am even happier. And I don’t like when my soups are too thick and creamy. Did I mention that I was a really picky eater?
All of a sudden it just got really cold. Like crazy, windy, 40-50 degrees cold. This is where my obsession with soup comes in handy. Now people won’t think I am crazy for making soup all the time. And they even want some of my soup. I’ll share (a little) sometimes.

I am in love with these Trader Joe’s Organic Tortilla Chips. Please ignore the blurry picture, I let my 5 year old take it. I figured it was just a picture of a bag of chips, how bad could the picture come out? THIS is how bad…
But you get the idea. They are delicious. I love that they are organic and have quinoa and chia seeds in them. And they taste extra delicious with this soup! Hope you enjoy the soup too!
