Root Vegetable Soup (Easy!)

I readily admit that I am a soup lover. All through fall and winter I make soup one or two times a week and eat it everyday. I'm always experimenting to come up with new varieties. Soup packs a nutritional punch when it is filled with a variety of vegetables, legumes, and grains. This soup is a great lunch or dinner starter as it is a classic vegetable soup without any fuss. You can put it together in about five minutes and let it simmer while you prepare your entree. The secret is to use frozen vegetables to fill out the soup so that you aren't doing much washing and chopping.

1/4 tsp coriander

1/4 tsp cumin

Place vegetable broth, tomato juice, root vegetables, potatoes, and celery in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, 30-40 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in coriander and cumin and serve garnished with parsley leaves if desired.

carrots, parsnips, and onions - about 5 cups total.
