*RECIPE NOTES -
You can use any fresh herbs you like or have in your garden. I usually use a mix of dill, oregano, thyme, sage and basil because that is what i have growing right now but I've made this before with just fresh dill and it was just as good. The key is FRESH herbs not dried are what is going to give this soup its great flavor. Putting in some fresh spinach or finely chopped kale once its done cooking is also great for extra nutrition. This recipe is very versatile so have fun with it.
If you want the soup thicker like a stew stick to 2 cups of water and if you want it more filling like a soup add in 4 cups of water. You can also add extra salt to taste and fresh lemon juice before eating which is great.
