Personally, this seems like the perfect soup to stack up on for if food shortages were to ever hit or catch us off guard. I mean, all of the ingredients are very available and I imagine that these will not be the first ingredients sold out anywhere.
I guess that’s just a really long way of saying that I find it fascinating that we can store it for so long. To that end, it also feels ideal for people living alone or with their other half as we can simply cook those 6 servings and save the other 4 or 5 for later. Plus, it’s fairly easy to make, the way I see it.
Great stuff! Thank you for sharing!! 🙂
One of the reasons I love these kinds of recipes is because the vegetables have a long “shelf life” so, yes, it’s easy to stock up. They are also inexpensive and the soup freezes very well!
