Hearty Veggie Soup

Sharing is caring!

As soon as the weather shifted to fall I started making this soup. I’ve always been a fan of simmering all my favorite veggies in a big pot on the stove. I love stealing tastes here and there. This Hearty Veggie Soup took a bit more work.

One day after watching Game Changers on Netflix, my husband and I started talking about our weekly meal plan. We both really wanted a soup but we have different favorites. I like tomato flavored soups like my Taco Soup and he is a fan of the veggie broth flavored soups like the Chickpea and Rice Soup.

You could picture us across the table negotiating all the ingredients in the soup but it wasn’t that dramatic. We’d both offer suggestions for ingredients and veto other ingredients. Finally this soup emerged victorious.

We started making it every weekend! It makes about 6-7 servings so it’s perfect for a weekend cooking session. After chopping the veggies it’s pretty hands off. I set it to simmer then go about my business. 

Even though this soup is plant-based, it somehow reminds me of the beef stew I ate as a kid. Crazy huh?

You can use your favorite veggie broth. I’ve used this veggie broth from Amazon with great results. I typically use my Veggie Broth Mix. I’ll usually add a little extra, ok sometimes I double it.

This soup uses mostly fresh ingredients, I use frozen green beans and canned tomatoes and beans. The chopping doesn’t take too long but you could probably substitute a bag of frozen mixed veggies if you were short on time. I haven’t tried it because I always have fresh potatoes, carrots, onion and broccoli at my house.

If you are using water I highly recommend you use my Veggie Broth Mix. It's delicious and gives you more control over the ingredients. Dry Veggie Broth Mix

Did you notice something missing from this recipe? I’ve made this so many times but the time I decide to take photos I forgot the green beans. I’ll take new pictures later but trust me, you don’t want to wait that long.
