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.

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.Vegetable Soup | Cooking Classy

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

  • Leslie: I love veggie coup. It’s my favorite. I was thinking of making a huge pot and freezing it for when it gets really cold. I love soup on cold days. October 22, 2014 at 2:03pm Reply

    • Renee: This does not freeze well because of the potatoes. I’ve tried it. Thought about substituting brown rice or whole grain pasta. But not sure if that would work. Love this recipe except for that problem! September 29, 2017 at 4:39pm Reply

      • Amy: I love this soup!! This will be my 3rd time making, and I always double it to freeze for the future. It actually freezes and reheats VERY well! Thanks for sharing :) October 22, 2017 at 3:01pm Reply

        • ZooKeeper Ed: Great idea adding the cornbread. You made me a hero with the girlfriend! January 6, 2018 at 4:36am Reply

      • Renée Mitchell: As a follow-up, I recently made this and used a can of cannellini beans instead of the potatoes. It tasted GREAT when reheated after freezing. ☺ I also added a tablespoon or two of tomato paste to the soup as someone else had suggested. January 26, 2018 at 1:57pm Reply
