hearty root vegetable soup

So this week, I've been on a little bit of a soup kick. As in, I've made so many different types of vegetable soup that I can't even keep track. But I wanted to share the best of the best, so here we are - a hearty, easy, and quick dinner that's healthy and focused on IN SEASON vegetables, which is so important to your health and the quality of the vegetables. 

Lately, I've been testing different bouillons as bases for my soups and have loved the bouillons by BOU. You know how traditional bouillon is a thick paste? BOU found a way around that and created a cube that packs all of the flavor without any of the unhealthy additives. It has 30% less salt, no artificial ingredients, it's non-GMO and gluten free (what more could you ask for?).
