Delicious between meals, as a first course, or in the starring main dish role at lunchtime or dinner, this comforting vegetable soup is satisfyingly full of a variety of vegetables and a flavorful, Italian-inspired broth. Serve it alongside a green salad spotted with bright herbs and toasted nuts, and some homemade croutons (oven toasted baguette slices or pita wedges). You could add Swiss chard or other greens to the pot for extra flavor and texture, or swap out the zucchini for a leafy green, as it adds more water than flavor to the soup.
