I think the only veg that I haven't put into a soup/stew is Cucumbers, but then isn't there a recipe some where for specifically Cucumber soup?

You were all so helpful! I picked up some carrots, sweet potatoes, frozen corn, frozen green beans, a can of butter beans, veggie stock ( I agree Andy :)), a vidalia onion and some canned diced tomatoes. I can't wait to put it all together this weekend...thanks everyone!

A couple years back I had a glut of romaine that needed using up. Except that it was way too cold to make salad. (Why did I buy that romaine again???) Anyway, came upon a recipe that specifically called for romaine, although I've also made it with tired Swiss chard or spinach. Himself loves it, too, and we can eat up an entire pot just between the two of us.

Chickpea and Romaine Soup with Golden Vermicelli

With the turmeric, paprika, and cayenne, this is a perfect soup to warm up with on a cold winter night.
