* We had this for breakfast this am but you may prefer it for dinner or lunch.
* In the AM, cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 – 30 minutes.
* Makes enough for several meals.
* Obviously, use whatever veggies you prefer. I like to season it with vegetarian chicken flavor broth mix, but I am out. Add more broth and you have a great soup
