Tuscan Vegetable Soup

DSCF6927

In all honesty, I was skeptical reading all of the reviews of this soup and thought they all were too good to be true…. But this soup blew my mind.

It is kind of reminiscent of the Olive Garden’s Minestrone Soup, but it is lacking a few ingredients to be that. Needless to say, I am impressed and will absolutely make this time and time again.

And for the record… that is actually a cup of coffee and not a glass of wine. Sweet baby Jesus, its a miracle!
