Fast and Easy Vegetable Soup

Sometimes, there is just nothing more comforting and nourishing than a bowl of soup.  Vegetable soup is a fantastic way to increase the amount of vegetables you eat, and you can use fresh, canned, or frozen vegetables to take advantage of seasonal produce or what you have stored.

Here is a simple recipe for vegetable soup that uses a mix of canned and frozen produce, but feel free to substitute fresh produce if you have it available:

Ingredients:

  • Organic vegetable broth
  • 1 can diced organic tomatos
  • 1 bag of organic frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 stalk of celery, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

In large saucepan, heat the olive oil and saute the onion, celery and garlic until soft.  Add seasonings, broth, tomatos, and vegetables.  Bring to a boil.  Lower heat to simmer until vegetables are soft and heated through - about 20 minutes.
