Kathy is sharing a guest post about vegetable soup that you will love. Use any kind of broth including my homemade stock.

Although most days I can eat my meals and be satisfied with having enough to eat but there are always a few days here and there where I just want to eat something more.  I need it to be healthy but I just feel hungry.  This is a great recipe for a vegetable soup that you can eat as much as you want.  It is filling and if you want more, go for it!

You can adjust this recipe however you want.  Just put in more of the vegetables that you enjoy.

Vegetable Soup

  • 2/3 Cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 Cup diced onions
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Cups fat free broth
  • 1 1/2 Cups diced green cabbage
  • 1/2 Cup green beans
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Cup diced zucchini

In a large saucepan, saute carrots, onions and garlic over low heat until softened.  (Use a cooking spray to avoid the use of oil)

Add the broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered for about 15 minutes.

Stir in the zucchini and heat another 3-4 minutes.

This recipe makes approximately 4 servings.

Enjoy!
