Rustic Root Vegetable Soup

As with most winters we’ve eaten a variety of soups and stews so finding something different is a welcomed option. This soup has wonderful flavor combinations from the root vegetables and fresh herbs and even the bacon. It’s perfect if you looking for something just a little bit different this time of year.
