I got this recipe from Flylady. It is the yummiest Veggie soup ever. I have made it many times for guests & they always rave about it & ask for the recipe. Even if you don't like veggie soup, I bet you will like this one!

I have to admit, we leave the cabbage out of this recipe. We re-heat it so much & I am not a fan of soggy cabbage, I like it cooked just a little. But some day I should try it. The cabbage might just cook up & dissolve & add extra vitamins to the soup!

How to Make Basic Veggie Soup w/ Add-ins

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large soup pot, heat one T. Olive oil over medium heat. Add onion & cook until translucent, now add garlic. Don't brown the garlic, but saute for a few minutes. Add carrots & celery, green beans, turnip, & cabbage, sauteing a minute or two. This infuses great flavor into the soup! Use the extra T. Olive oil in this step if needed. Add the Thyme, salt, & pepper while sauteing.
  2. Choose cooking method. If using a crockpot, transfer ingredients to pot now & add tomatoes, broth & potatoes. If cooking on stove top, leave ingredients in soup pot & add tomatoes, broth & potatoes. Simmer the soup on low for a few hours on the stove, or in crockpot on low for 6 hours.
  3. Before serving, mash some of the potato chunks against the side of the pot to thicken soup. Stir & serve.
  4. Basic Veggie Soup Add ins:
    Now comes the fun part! Make your soup an entire meal if you want! Store the soup in the fridge. Take just enough soup out for the meal you are serving. (Leave the rest in the fridge & try a different add in another day!) Choose add ins for that meal.
