Building the soup from there, I often insert cubes of waxy potatoes and a lot of chopped environmentally friendly cabbage.

Cherry tomatoes are slash into crescents, youthful yellow beans, sweet contemporary corn, and slivered basil are all reasonable game. All those of you with gardens – raid them.
