Another Super Vegetables Soup

I love soups….

And I am going really wild with it!

The other day I made a soup with left over vegetables in my fridge.

Ingredients:

  • stockpot with 8 cups of water.
  • Carrots, celery, zucchini, 2 small onions chopped up.
  • Can of navy beans.
  • One vegetarian bouillon cube.
  • Pepper & Salt
  • and last touch: fresh thyme cooked with it.

The navy beans give the soup a thicker texture, and the rosemary, the bouillon cube, pepper & salt give it such a nice taste.

Super healthy, so I make this soup and since it is all vegetarian, you can keep reheating it (I think it tastes even better!).

I  have soup like this for 3 days in a row, as vegetable soup does not go bad as fast as when you use animal based stock or ingredients.

Enjoy!

Love, Lonneke

    Do you like curry taste in soup? I have made very similar soups like this and then added a lot of spicy Thai curry power I got. Do you pre-cook the veggies? I usually sautee the celery and onion in olive oil and butter first and then chop the carrots and microwave them with water and they are soft and can be added right away. I love the smell of celery cooking. If you like rice, you can just throw in like a half cup and it will cook and thicken it in like 20-30 minutes. I don’t know where to get the fresh rosemary, do you have an herb garden? I bet that adds a nice flavor. I agree soups get a better taste after a day or two.

    I changed it to thyme ,I by accident wrote rosemary instead of thyme! You can use fresh or dried. (fresh is best) I just cook the vegetables in the soup. I don’t like microwaving food anymore, I learnt there can be some health risks involved (but using it is fast and super easy that’s for sure!) Sounds good first sauteing the onions and celery, will give it an extra kick, will try that next time!

    I’m surprised you use canned beans,as the sodium content in canned foods is really high.You can do the fast soak and cook method for beans: cook beans for three minutes,then soak for three hours.A lot healthier and faster!
