How to Add More Flavor to Vegetable Soup
We love this vegetable soup and it’s very flavorful! We season with our favorite herbs or add Italian Seasoning but you can add whatever you’d like! Here are a few additions to change the flavor:
add a few dashes of hot sauce
fresh herbs such as basil or cilantro
parmesan cheese (or a cheese rind while cooking)
a very small amount of balsamic vinegar
tomato paste or bouillion
a splash of wine
