Hearty Winter Vegetable Soup

Lately we have been shaking off the winter and stretching, getting ready for spring...but I still LOVE soup!  This hearty soup has a bounty of winter vegetables, is low in calories, and very simple to make.

Tip: Gourmet Kitchen brand Soup Greens, found in the produce department of your local supermarket, contains just the right amount of the last eight ingredients--BUT they may not be organic.  Best to check!

Number of Servings: 8


    Turkey kielbasa or other turkey sausage, 1 lb. (there is a free-range turkey farm near me that sells wonderful all-natural turkey sausage!) Pacific Natural Foods Organic Beef Broth, 4 cups Carrots, raw, 1 cup, chopped                                                                                                    Celery, raw, .5 cup, diced Onions, raw, 1 large *Potato, raw, 1 medium (2-1/4" to 3-1/4" dia.) Parsnips, 0.5 cup slices Turnips, 1 cup, cubes Parsley, 2 sprigs Dill weed, fresh, 2 sprigs
