Although my husband isn’t a big soup eater, he has made strides in the past few years. Albeit, he was forced more times than not. A soup is a cheaper way to save on the budget because a soup can last for days. It also helps free time from meal planning and preparation.
Soups also provide a healthy alternative to the easily microwaveable meals we find ourselves eating or feeding to our family. If your family loves soup they will go crazy for this Instant Pot veggie loaded chicken and sausage soup.
Sometimes the best recipes can come from a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It is the season for soups. What I especially love about soups is they give way for a usage for leftovers. Vegetable soup is one I sometimes make to use up leftover vegetables.
That is pretty much how this soup was born. I had a little bit of this and that and next thing I know, poof! A brand new recipe!
This soup is perfect as we head into the long winter months to give yourself something a little different to try. It is also very high in protein and even healthier if you use your own broth!
