Soup nights are big in my house, and this has become our new favorite soup recipe.  As the days get shorter and cooler, we all crave comfort food like spicy soup full of vegetables.  My mom loves one from Panera Bread, so I knew I had to make a copycat recipe for her.

The great thing about soup is you can use up your leftovers.  We all know how expensive our trips to the grocery store are nowadays, so it’s nice to know we can whip up a delicious soup and add our leftover vegetables in so they don’t waste.
