Tips: This was a delicious, meatless soup that was quick to put together. If you prefer it to be completely vegetarian, I'm sure it would be just as tasty with vegetable broth in place of the beef broth. I also crumbled whole wheat Ritz crackers into the soup when I served it to make it a bit thicker. I also shared this recipe on Kitchen Stewardship's Carnival of Super Foods.
