Well, I may be “Grill Girl” but I still use my stove top from time to time just to make sure I remember how. This week we got hit by a tropical depression so the grilling conditions were less than ideal. However, it was the perfect time to be cozy inside and make this hearty soup.

Here’s a little secret you don’t have to tell your family so they will unsuspectingly enjoy this dish to the fullest: it is actually low fat, loaded in fiber and meat-free! I didn’t tell Scott that this dish was vegetarian until AFTER he had eaten 2 bowls with lots of moaning in the process. After he enjoyed it so much, he couldn’t complain about it being vegetarian!
