Curried Vegetable Soup
I created this recipe uniting my favorite spices with frozen vegetables to save time. It's easy to scale up to feed a crowd. I usually prepare enough to make sure there are leftovers. For a buffet, keep this soup warm in a slow cooker, and set yogurt out in a separate dish to let guests serve themselves. —Heather Demeritte, Scottsdale, Arizona
