Chicken and Roasted Veggie Soup

Oh I love fall and the cool weather… and soup! I could literally eat soup all year round – well actually I do. The rest of my family, not so much. They will though… now that it is getting cooler! This soup recipe is very easy, yet filling and tasty. It is pretty easy on the tummy in case you are feeling under the weather also. If you don’t eat potatoes for whatever reason, you could omit those and use more of one of the other root vegetables. This is also great for using homemade broth and leftover pieces from your roasted chicken! Makes 4 servings.
