The weather is getting chillier outside and winter is getting closer. The perfect time of the year for soup! If you’re a soup lover like myself, this recipe is for you. Feel free to get inventive with this recipe or follow it to a T. I like to change up my herbs when I make things, mainly because it’s fun when food doesn’t always taste the same every single time. Get your spatula ready and start cooking!
