This extremely healthy soup is my kids favorite. It tastes like pizza, so they usually want seconds. It’s even better on the second day, that’s when I usually sneak a bowl for lunch or snack. My kids always ask for cheese please, so be kid friendly and think of all the veggies they are getting.
1cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green sweet pepper
1 cup sliced zucchini
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
