Sautee the onion, leek, garlic, on medium heat until tender. Add in the celery, carrots, and potatoes, season with S and P, add chili flakes and let cook for a few minutes. Add broth and water, bring to a boil, and then turn to low, simmer for 10 minutes (until the potatoes are tender).

Add green beans, zucchini, tomatoes, peas, and navy beans. Simmer for another 15 minutes. Add in the green onions and herbs, simmer for another 5. You can keep the soup on the stove for a while, but it’s great when the soup has a bite to it. Top with parmesan cheese and enjoy the benefits of a healthy, soothing, scrumptious soup!
