I put this soup together when I was pregnant to try to satisfy all my food cravings at once. It's sweet and tangy with all the nutritional value I could think of at the time and is as thick as a stew. Fresh or frozen veggies can be substituted for canned, but add additional water. This is good right away, but outstanding the next day.
