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.

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.
Adding Extra Flavor – Herbs And Spices To Add
- fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, thyme
- red pepper flakes will add a spicy kick
- 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!
