"Grandpa sends me veggies from his huge garden every year and I use 'em for this soup, which has been called 'the best soup I've ever eaten' by friends. It's pretty unstructured and can change to meet your personal tastes. It's basically a chicken veggie soup; it's the FRESH veggies that make it the best. I just throw stuff in until it looks and tastes the way I want it to. It's also GREAT if you're sick; I swear it'll cure what ails ya! YUM! The longer you SLOWLY cook the soup, the more flavorful it becomes. I often eat a bowl while it's simmering 'cause I can't wait."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I LOVE a good kitchen-sink recipe. Because I don't agree with changing a recipe then rating it, I made it exactly as written. Great healthy soup that tasted wonderful. I'll be making this one again.
Excellent recipe! Thank you for the healthy comfort recipe.
The soup was very good but I did do a few things differently. I doubled the herbs, garlic and onion for more flavor as well as adding in other seasoning. I felt like the stock would have been bland without the extra. Great soup, will definitely be making this again!
Really good flavour by using the whole chicken. It all disappeared, so we all liked it, including baby.
This soup is pretty fantastic! I made it as written, but w/o cabbage. My 3yo son smelled it and declared he was "starving for this stew!" Only change I would make next time is to use all dark meat, as the breast meat got a little tough.
I love this soup! I used a chicken stock as base and switched potatoes for zucchini to make it a bit lighter.. It is very healthy and super fast to make! Fresh green beens and fresh corn taste amazing, makes me never want to go back to frozen veggies! I will definitely cool it again. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
It was great... your only limited by what's in your garden or kitchen
Wow. Just wow. I did not have kohlrabi, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. This was absolutely FANTASTIC!
