The weather here in the south is beginning to cool down, and it is lovely. I love a hot bowl of soup on a cool day. However this tasty soup recipe is great for any day. I love to couple this with organic corn muffins, Garden of Eatin chips or a small side salad. I also love to add sliced avocados to the top. You can add more veggies and you can leave the chicken out if you prefer. So hop on in the kitchen and get cooking. And don’t forget to make extra. It is perfect to freeze and thaw out on a busy day for supper.


3 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

3 basil leaves chopped finely
