Easy Vegetable Soup

The great thing about this soup is you don’t have to stick to the exact recipe.  Add more of veggies you love and leave out the ones you hate.  I frequently use this as a way of “cleaning out the fridge”.  When my veggies look like their at the end of their life I chop ’em up and toss ’em in!
veg.soup1

1 sweet onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 Tbs olive oil
2-3 large zucchini or squash, sliced in coins and cut in half again
4 large carrots, chopped into bite size pieces
4 stalks of celery, chopped into small pieces
1 bag of frozen corn
1 bag of frozen green beans
2 cans of beans, (I chose 1 kidney beans and 1 can black beans)
1 can diced tomatoes (low sodium)
1 can tomato paste
4 cups water plus one vegan bullion cube (or 32 ounces of veggie stock)
S and P to taste
I also add a season from Trader Joe’s called the Every Day Seasoning

veg. soup2Heat oil in large soup pot.  Sauté onion and garlic for a couple of minutes until brown.  Lower heat to medium heat and add in the zucchini, carrots, celery.  Once the vegetables have softened a little, about 5 minutes) Add the water and bullion cube.
Bring to a boil and add thawed green beans and corn.
Once boiling, reduce to a simmer for about 30 minutes or until you are ready to serve.

Soup saves well in jars, and re heats nicely.  Can last about a week in refrigerator.
