This brothy soup is chock-full of veggies and incredibly easy to make. We look to a frozen bell pepper and onion blend to provide the savory backbone of the soup, along with bay leaves and thyme sprigs. The only real prep work you have to do is to slice some squash, which takes just a few minutes. Feel free to substitute zucchini if yellow squash isn’t available or if your family just prefers the former. Serve as a starter, a side to a sandwich, or a snack.
