Massachusetts winters are cold. It’s the time of year when I crave comfort foods of all sorts. Most of the comfort foods I crave take a long time to prepare, but not soup.

I love a good hearty soup. Paired with a crusty bread, it’s the perfect meal to take the chill out of your bones. The following recipe has to be one of the quickest and easiest to prepare. Of course, it’s delicious too!

Ingredients
Package of soup vegetables from your produce aisle
If your grocery store does not have such a package use the following:
2 chopped lengths of celery
1 chopped carrot
1 chopped onion
1 chopped leek
1 chopped potato
1 chopped turnip
1 chopped parsnip
1/2 cup of chopped parsley
2 tbsp chopped dill

3-4 cups stock of choice
1 tbsp olive oil

Optional
1 cup of cooked rice, pasta, beans or chopped chicken

Instructions
Heat olive oil in a stockpot
Chop all vegetables and add to olive oil
Heat and stir until vegetables start to brown
Add stock and cook 20-30 minutes, until vegetables are tender
