Vegetable Soup with Israeli Couscous

I love this flavorful vegetable soup that is filling yet very healthy. Make and freeze in individual serving sizes for a deliciously easy soup. I added a Parmesan cheese rind for added flavor that is your option. If you want a strictly vegan soup omit the cheese. Serve with freshly baked bread along with a big salad for a fabulous easy quick dinner.   

Vegetable Soup with Israeli Couscous

2 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic
1 chopped shallot
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon Penzeys Mural of Flavor
