In the Kitchen with Lisa...Quick Homemade Vegetable Soup

 My view for most of today.  I am parked out on the couch feeling under the weather.  This is my favorite room to relax in so I'm curled up with my laptop, lots of tea and a warm wool blanket.  
 Lunch is just around the corner and I am craving hot soup.  Work with what you have is my motto on days like today.

So here is a super easy way to make a satisfying healthy soup with what is hanging out in the fridge.

Gather your ingredients.  In my case it was 100% tomato juice & beef stock - that will be my base.  Gather whatever veggies you have on hand.

Interesting combo of pre-cut veggies from Trader Joe's.  I'm all about pre-cut veggies these days.


The only vegetable I chopped was my zucchini

I tossed in 2 big handfuls of baby spinach, no need to chop

I have been using a lot of different flavored salts all summer and suggest if you haven't tried them, you need to!  In this case I am using a rosemary infused salt.

I wanted a hint of garlic in this soup.  Smash it, mince it, throw it in!

Toss all ingredients into a pot, season with your favorite herbs & spices, let it simmer and fill your house with a wonderful savory aroma.

Add some finishing touches...  drizzle with some olive oil, sprinkle with some parmesan and serve with a cauliflower biscuit!
There you have it, a healthy veggie soup for a chilly fall day.
Now get creative yourself and have fun in your kitchen.

  1. That soup looks fabulous. I love soup. I could eat soup every day. Hubby? Not so much. That is the coolest coffee table I've ever seen in my entire life.


    1. Hi Andi, I'm with you...soup everyday! The coffee table is cool. It is an old banana box that is dated April 1937. We added the casters (bought old casters so it wouldn't look funny with new ones) and I had glass cut for the top. Unique.
