The secret to the deep, rich flavor of this soup is the mixed salad greens. Nobody will believe it is ready in under 30 min.! The vegetables choices are endless and the potatoes can be swapped with cooked pasta or rice, added last minute, or canned beans, rinsed and drained. I love it with tortellini!
