This soup is a great way to use up any leftovers in your fridge, freezer and pantry. It is a complete meal on its own providing lots of fibre and protein. Use whatever vegetables you have on hand in your crisper and modify the soup to your liking. You can top it with some cubed avocado, coconut kefir or nacho crumbs. Enjoy!
