Recipe

When it rains, I make soup…and normally curl up on my couch to eat said soup and either watch cheesy television shows or read trashy magazines. Definitely a guilty pleasure. Luckily, I live in Los Angeles so this isn’t normally too much of a problem. Except now it has rained for five days. Trouble.

I based this soup recipe on a recipe I read in the latest Food and Wine magazine and just changes based on what looked fresh at the store. You could use virtually any of your favorite vegetables in this stew to mix it up and create different flavors.
