June 22, 2014

girl with vegetables for hairYes, I know summer is here. Hot weather. But I also know that sometimes, you just want to eat something healthy and filling. And simple to make.  This is  the best vegetable soup recipe I’ve ever made, hearty and delicious. But best of all? It’s easy soup to make. (Yes, I know that image is odd. Very odd.)

Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe

2 heads of bok choy
1 broccoli crown
5 carrots cut in eighth-inch circles (for faster cooking)
half an onion
1 14-oz can of chopped tomatoes or fresh
2 cloves garlic
1 bay leaf
1 head cauliflower
1 cup of cooked lentils–packaged or cook yourself
2  32-oz. packages low sodium vegetable broth
seasoned pepper

Put everything except the cooked lentils in a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer until the carrots and broccoli are tender, then add the cooked lentils for some protein and a hearty flavor. Heat through and serve with crusty bread or soda crackers.

  1. Carol I just started doing Weight Watchers again, and this works right into my plan, thanks!!

  2. My mother used to make homemade vegetable soup so it’s a comfort food for me. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I’m going to save it for the fall. It sounds fabulous and easy to make.

  3. Looks easy and like it would be satisfying. Soups are so easy to make once we understand the basics: a broth (vegetable or meat based) and ingredients (take your pick) and seasonings (take your pick). The variations are endless. And the summer soups only require a blender!

  4. I am going to hold on to this one…sounds really good!

  5. Healthy and delicious – sounds like a great recipe to make! Your image shows a person with rather unique hair – but her skin is beautiful. She must eat her veggies!

    Delish & Nutrish. I can’t wait to make this recipe. I love vegetable soup!

  8. That picture is so weird to me. It drew me in and freaked me out at the same time. 😉

    But now, onto the soup. I’m so bad at freezing recipes, I never seem to know when to use them by or how to defrost. But it seems like a good recipe just the same!
