Vegetable soup is a great way to get a variety of vegetables in your diet, even in the middle of winter.  Yes, while fresh tomatoes and green beans always taste better from a summer harvest, many frozen vegetables work pretty well in soups, allowing for the making of a hearty, homemade, vegetable soup.  This soup is more stew like.  If you prefer a soupier consistency just use more vegetable broth, or add in some water.

Carrot, Cucumber, Jicama Slaw with Citrus Yogurt Dressing
