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!
