Easy Vegetable Soup is an easy, delicious, healthy soup recipe to try.
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.
They say that soup warms the soul, and I’d say they’re right. This Easy Vegetable Soup feels like a nice treat on an especially cold day. And you can feel good about getting a generous dose of vegetables as well. Enjoy!

Loved it! Added 1/2 cup of corn and just added 1/2 cup peas. I went another way with the soup and added tobasco. We’re from Texas and like a little heat. No cheese or basil. Just like a soup I love to eat.
Sounds healthy and delicious!
This looks so yummy! I have been looking for a good vegetable soup recipe for lunch times & this looks prefect. Can’t wait to try it!
Soups have been my saving grace this winter. Love the parm on top! I need to try that with my next batch.
I do something very similar and often add a cup or two of cooked beans to make it even more hearty.
Nice and easy. Thank you.
