Vegetable Soup


This Vegetable Soup has become one of my most popular soup recipes and for good reason! It’s healthy, it’s comforting and 1,000 times better than what you’ll get in a can! Full of flavor and so easy to make you can’t go wrong with a big warm bowl of vegetable soup.

Not only is this soup delicious but and it’s so easy to make. It just takes some chopping and a fair amount of simmering until you’ve got a soup worth remembering.

This is one you’ll definitely want to add to your dinner rotation.

What Vegetables To Put In Vegetable Soup

You can put whatever vegetables you like in this soup, from seasonal fresh veggies to frozen. Here’s a list of what I used;

  • yellow onion
  • carrots
  • celery
  • tomatoes
  • green beans
  • corn
  • peas

How to make Vegetable Soup

It is probably one of the healthiest things I’ve made for dinner in a while.

I had two bowls then came back before bed for a third because I liked it so much. I love that it uses half fresh veggies and half frozen so you still get all that freshness but have the ease of pre-cut frozen veggies too.

During the summer when you have all the fresh veggies on hand definitely feel free to use all fresh instead.A ladle scooping up some Vegetable Soup from a pot

Adding Extra Flavor – Herbs And Spices To Add

  • fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, thyme
  • red pepper flakes will add a spicy kick
  • paprika
  • garlic adds so much flavor

Try it soon, and for even more goodness serve it with fresh crusty bread for dipping in the broth. Yum!

  • Margot Higg: Awesome soup. Takes longer then noted due to chopping etc. Also, I doubled the recipe as I normally do for my 3 men at home. Way too much, enough to share with neighbors. This recipe makes enough for several nitghts with 3 men (hubby + 2 adult sons!!). Very clean hearty meal! February 11, 2019 at 6:16pm Reply

  • Gini: This is the best vegetable soup I’ve ever made. I don’t even usually like vegetable soup, but I decided to make some to have a quick and healthy lunch on hand for the week. This is absolutely delicious. I added steakhouse seasoning and red pepper flakes. Will definitely make it again. February 6, 2019 at 9:45am Reply
