Confetti Vegetable Soup Recipe

Start with 2 quarts of water, to which you may add any fresh vegetables you like: turnips, rutabagas, carrots, onions, potatoes (with the skins left on and scrubbed well), celery, lima beans, yellow squash, peas, corn, green beans, tomatoes, etc. Start the root vegetables first, then add the quicker-cooking ones. The idea is to make this soup as colorful as possible, so dice the vegetables into bite-sized pieces that look like confetti.

Season the broth with minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of sage or thyme and 1 tablespoon of vegetable salt. If the soup seems watery, pour a little of the hot liquid into 1/4 cup of plain yogurt and blend the mixture well so that it has no lumps. Then stir the thickener into the main pot and dish up!

Simple enough? And you'll find these soups substantial enough to satisfy the most robust appetites, at costs that won't deplete even the puniest financial resources!
