Ratatouille Soup - My Whole Food Life

If you wanted to add more protein to this soup, I could see white beans or kidney beans going real well in here.  This soup is great on it’s own though.  Plus the house will smell amazing!  Unlike most soup recipes, this one contains no broth.  Most of the vegetables release so much water in the cooking process, that there was no need for broth.  This recipes makes a very large amount of soup.  It’s quite budget friendly.  I store mine in serving sized containers in the freezer for easy meals on those busy days.
