With outside temperatures dropping for many of us, salad season is almost over. Now we tend to crave warm and cozy foods but at the same time want it to be healthy and nutritious. This soup recipe can help to keep you warm during the fall and winter! Feel free to add one serving of an ancient grain if you want to make a more balanced meal. You can prepare this recipe in an instant pot or on the stove.
