I was home for the weekend visiting my family and my mom made this delicious soup. It was so good I thought I just had to share it! It’s full of flavor and all kinds of nutritious goodness. It makes quite a bit so if you have any left over, it’s the perfect meal to freeze in single portions for quick and easy lunches.
