Vegetable Soup with Millet

Soup season is here and I am loving every minute of it.  We always seem to have some soup stored away in our freezer.  It’s a huge time saver when life gets a little too busy.  This is my latest creation.

If you can’t find millet, wild rice or brown rice would make a nice replacement.  I added the millet because I wanted the soup to be a complete and filling meal.  This is very simple to make.
