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!

  • Janelle Clark: This was fantastic. I put in orzo for the last ten minutes of cooking, instead of using potatoes. I also put in some leftover chopped baby bok choy I had on hand. I used a mix of chicken stock and vegetable broth, and used oregano and basil instead of thyme (simply because I don’t like thyme!) My husband and I each had two bowls!

  • Dawn Moore: Scrumptious! I followed the recipe precisely & added La Hot Sauce at the end though. It turned out wonderfully & just what we needed on this cold Louisiana night. I’m saving this recipe! January 30, 2019 at 5:22pm Reply

  • Nicole: I made this soup last night in my slow cooker with vegetable broth, hunts no salt basil, garlic diced tomatoes. All of the other ingredients were frozen except for the potatoes. 4 hours on high= delicious! January 28, 2019 at 4:59am Reply

  • Jennifer Howe: My daughter made this soup and introduced me to your site and now I make it exactly as written. It is so delicious and flavorful! It has become our favorite vegetable soup and now I always have some in the freezer for a quick dinner. I gave the recipe to 3 other family members! It’s a hit! January 23, 2019 at 5:59pm Reply

  • Kathy Fredericks: I made the soup yesterday but I took some liberties with the recipe ;-)
    I do not like corn so I did not use that. I did sauté the beginning vegetables exactly as written above. I then added the fresh parsley, bay leaves and thyme, some cracked pepper, the three medium potatoes, fresh green beans and one zucchini. Then I added more stuff! I added one can of fiery diced tomatoes plus one regular can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of black beans, two cans of cannellini beans, some vegan Parmesan cheese & near the end, chard and kale. Right before serving – I also added some fresh lemon juice. It was delicious!!! January 21, 2019 at 9:29am Reply
