Now that you've made your own vegetable stock, you'll need a delectable vegetable soup recipe to put the stock to good use. This one is easy, hearty, and soothing. The technique to make this soup is similar to making the stock; it starts by roasting a bunch of vegetables in the oven. This concentrates the flavor and softens the texture of the veggies. While the ingredient list calls for tomatoes, leeks, garlic, and carrots, virtually any vegetables you have on hand will work: red peppers, onions, root vegetables, etc. To check out the simple yet satisfying recipe, please read more.
