This is comfort food at its homiest. The texture is soothing, the flavor is mellow. Sure, you could add some cayenne or hot sauce. Sure you could add some corn or diced winter squash, either uncooked with the other vegetables, or cooked toward the end. Maybe some cooked rice at the end. All would be good. But the simplicity of this soup just speaks to me. (Though I surely wouldn’t pass up the chance to throw in some leftover vegetables if they were lying around.)
