Fall’s Comforting Soup

It is getting already cold outside, and what is more comforting than a good, warm soup? Here is my homemade meal soup, it is similar to minestrone soup, only much better! If you don’t have all of the vegetables included in this recipe, use what you have in your refrigerator, while respecting the total quantity of vegetables.
