Spring Vegetable Soup is a combination of some of my favorite spring vegetables like asparagus, carrots and spring peas to name a few to make a delicious soup. I finished it off by garnishing with a little parsley and freshly grated Parmesan. Such a fabulous way to celebrate spring that leaves you feeling full and satisfied!
