1 white onion, peeled and diced

1 bunch of green onions, diced

O is for Onion. My favorites are the big white ones, the sweet yellow ones, and the Spring green ones

M is for Maize, the Native American word for corn

Kernels of 3 ears of corn

A is for vitamin A. We all know that Vitamin A is found in carrots, but it's also found in green vegetables like Asparagus and Artichokes

C is for Carrots, yummy! I love carrots; they're sweet, crunchy and good for the eyes, teeth and bones.

3 carrots, peeled and cut into pieces

If your pot is uncovered, add 1/4 cup water

1 medium daikon, peeled and cut into pieces

N is for Nutmeg, a wonderful spice that smells good too!

2 heads of broccoli (and their trimmed stalks) cut into pieces

L is for Lemongrass, which is used a lot in Asia. If you can't find it, you can substitute a little lemon juice, or a little of its peel.

V is also for Victory. While I stir this soup, I thank God for my Victory over illiteracy. Not only can I read wonderful recipes, I can write them too, for you to read and to enjoy preparing!

1 tablespoon minced lemongrass or 1/2 teaspoon yellow lemon peel, grated

If you plan to use a lid, you can chop some Watercress or Water Chestnuts, to make sure that there is a "W" in the soup.

B is for Broccoli. Former President Bush was famous for not enjoying broccoli, but his wife Barbara loved it, and she was dedicated to the cause of reading, all across this country. I hope you'll join me in thanking Barbara Bush for all of her work with l

1 yellow onion, peeled and diced

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 to 1/2 pound asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces

W is for Water, which won't be necessary if you cover the pot while the soup is simmering (this may be a good moment for you parents to explain to your kids how liquid evaporates, or rises in the form of steam).

V is for Vegetable; the Vegetable of your choice that isn't in the pot yet (maybe cabbage, squash, bell pepper, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, garlic cloves, anything you can think of!)

6 artichoke bottoms (hearts) cut into quarters

D is for Daikon, a vegetable used a lot in Asian cuisine. It adds a wonderful flavor to soup.
