Warm and tasty soup on a rainy day. I was waiting for the perfect weather to cook this delicious soup. Luckily, last night, it rained the whole night. It was very comforting. I served this soup, pour myself a drink, and sat down to watch Forrest Gump on Netflix! It was the best night ever! This soup is so great that I almost finished the whole pot. It is very easy to cook yet it has a very complex flavor! Try it and taste it yourself. Enjoy!
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks, or more to taste
4 large carrots, chopped, or more to taste

Step 1: Place a large soup pot on the stove.
Step 2: Add in the carrots, potatoes, garlic, celery, onion, basil, parsley, bouillon, salt, and pepper.

You can use 1/2 bag of baby carrots if you wish.
I always include the celery leaves because it has a lot of flavors.
