Hodge Podge refers to a “disorderly mess’ or in the case of this recipe, “a jumble of ingredients”. At first glance, the ingredients do look a little strange, but trust me, they go together so well. Hodge Podge Soup is easy comfort food and pretty much anything goes!

The beauty of this soup recipe is you can switch out ingredients based on what’s in kitchen. I would stick to tomato based soups though. I don’t know how good cream soups would be, but you never know. Maybe it would be a winner, too.

It’s like taking a bunch of canned food from your pantry and turning them into something homemade and delicious. I love those clean out your kitchen recipes!
