My Winter Favorite: Cozy Greens Soup

Cozy Greens Soup

Why I love this soup?  In the winter we all just start craving our favorite fatty foods, many of which are pretty dern unhealthy.  Soup is one of the favorite winter treats, but it’s usually either incredibly unhealthy or just doesn’t fill ya up.

This soup? Tons o greens, tasty veggies, and once you add that parm rind: the fatty taste you need in your winter soup.

I love this cozy soup.  A special thanks Megan Dyer for teaching me this one!
