As we are getting back into the swing of things here in chilly Indiana, the family decided it was time for a big batch of our favorite veggie soup.
Truth be told, we take the Sandra Lee approach to this soup… a little semi homemade…
So I grabbed my favoritest new
soup everything pot and poured 32 oz of whole tomatoes in and heated them up…
Add 1 cup frozen yellow squash
Toss in 3 cloves garlic… don’t worry about chopping them up… we will take care of that in a second.
Now we are going to put a lid on it and cook until all the veggies are tender.
While that is cooking up, get your chop on…
Chop up 1 zucchini, 2 carrots, 3 celery ribs and 1/2 head of cabbage into bite size pieces.
Then rinse off about 2 cups of fresh spinach
By now, your veggies should be ready. So, grab a hand blender or pour your contents into a regular blender and make the veggies into a puree.
Now we have a base for our soup.
Now let’s add another jar of tomatoes (32 oz)
Add in 2 Cups frozen veggie soup mix
Then add 1 t parsley, 1 t basil and 1 t thyme and an optional 1 t cumin.
Let that all simmer covered for 30-40 minutes.
While that is cooking, go ahead and chop up the rest of those veggies and toss them in the freezer.
Then uncover your pot and enjoy!

A perfect supper dish…yummy
What was in your frozen veggie soup mix? the one I found has carrots, onion and potato. if I’m already using onion and carrots, would it be better just to add some frozen green beans? We can’t add corn. did yours have potato?
Cris Goode says
I believe it had frozen green beans, corn, potatoes, carrots, peas, okra, etc. I have made it before with different mixes. Adding frozen green beans or only what your family will enjoy will work just fine… and yes, it had bite size potatoes in it.
