It has been a while since I posted a soup recipe on the blog. To be more exact – this Vegetable Beef Soup in June. It’s kinda strange keeping in mind that fall and winter are considered to be soup seasons! Well, I actually made quite a significant number of soups during the last months but somehow they didn’t make it to the blog. Not today, though!

This soup is so good that I am posting it for the second time on the blog already! The last post was way back in 2014. I decided to make a new one because my photography has improved significantly and who doesn’t want to look at more eye-appealing pictures before making a recipe, right?

Um, what’s more to say about this gorgeous soup? It also features mushrooms, a bunch of various veggies, and is topped with grated Parmesan cheese or croutons, or BOTH! Silly me, I forgot to get bread for croutons this time and I didn’t have any stale one at the moment. Ugh, of course it had to happen exactly today. We always have some stale bread at home but, of course, not today. Uh uh. Well, but you got the point. I usually top my Chicken Florentine Soup with both Parmesan and croutons. It tastes the best this way!
