Vegan Garden Vegtable soup

This was a hard soup to male.  I kept wanting to add meat and beef stock to it.  However I had decided that I know we had some vegetarians at church ( I am praying for them 🙂     )  This  would also make a great veggie beef soup by changing the stock to beef and add some chopped up steak or some beef roast chucks.
