Hearty Veggie Soup
1 tablespoon of oil, broth or water
1 medium diced onion
1 cup chopped celery
1cup chopped carrots
2-4 cups cabbage and greens (I used turnip and collard greens)
1 small diced yellow squash
3 chopped roma tomatoes
½ diced eggplant
1 cup green beans
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cans of beans (I used great northern and red beans)
6 cups of veggie broth ( I used 4 cups of veggie broth and two cups of tomato sauce --small can of tomato sauce with some water)
¼ teaspoon (or more) of onion powder, garlic powder, spike, Ms. Dash, paprika, pepper
First chop all the veggies up, then in a large pot heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, carrots and sauté for about 5 minutes. Start adding all the veggies except the cabbage and greens. Then add the broth and spices, let the soup come to a boil then cook for around 20-30 minutes at a lower heat. Add the cabbage and greens last.
Note: I don’t measure anything so everything is a guess.
You can add any veggies, beans and grains that you want or have on hand.
