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 pretty filling.  I love eating soup for lunch every day! It’s a nice way to fill yourself up without overindulging in the middle of the day.

How to make Easy Vegetable Soup:

Get out your favorite soup pot. Combine potatoes, onions, carrots, celery and broth. Bring to a boil, and simmer until the potatoes are tender (about 10 minutes). Next, add diced tomatoes, zucchini, green beans, peas, oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer 10 more minutes, and the soup will be ready to serve. So easy!

Top Easy Vegetable Soup 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! If you want to keep things a little lighter (or if you’re dairy free or Vegan), you can leave off the cheese entirely.

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