Easy Vegetable Soup

Here’s an easy, delicious, healthy soup recipe to try:  Easy Vegetable Soup

Easy Vegetable Soup

I’ve been on a mission to make soup once a week– every single week– this winter!  This week I made a very easy vegetable soup- with mostly fresh vegetables inside.  There’s a bit of potato in there, so it turns out to be filling.  I love eating soup for lunch every day!

Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe

Top it with a little Parmesan cheese, and it’s just perfect.  Make a pot at the beginning of the week and you’ll have an easy lunch to eat every single day of the week!

Yield: 8 servings (1 1/2 cups per serving)

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Easy Vegetable Soup

Ingredients:

2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 2 large celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • One 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 2 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh green beans
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. In a large soup pot, combine the potatoes, onion, carrots, celery and broth over medium-high heat; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the potatoes are just tender- about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, zucchini, green beans, peas, oregano, salt and pepper.  Continue to simmer until the vegetables are tender- about 10 minutes longer.  Remove the pot from heat.  Top individual servings with 1 tablespoon fresh basil and 1 tablespoon cheese.

    I do something very similar and often add a cup or two of cooked beans to make it even more hearty.
