"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." — SRF0079

Excellent recipe! Thank you for the healthy comfort recipe.
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.
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!
