This vegetable chowder soup is a hit with all three of us! Even the little one who has decided lately that she will mainly eat only orange vegetables. (She eats everything in this soup!) This is also a great soup to make if you have a bunch of vegetables that need to be used up.
It’s really quick to make and is paired wonderfully with a baguette and salad. I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we do!
