This was a delicious soup that really filled us up, but didn't drive up the calories! I just used all our leftover vegetables (more carrots & squash, no turnips). I also added some red pepper for heat and threw in what was left of our fresh thyme. I think for this soup to work you def need to kick up the spices and herbs. Next time I'm going to use non-fat greek yogurt instead of milk to make it a little creamier. Overall, I think this recipe is a delicious way to use all those leftover veggies!
