- The Fam
Husband and I discussed what to call this soup. I mean, it should be fairly straight forward, but I just didn’t know what to do. Was it a Minestrone? Can I really call it a Vegetable Soup? Or should it be a stew?
What am I doing? I can call it what I want because I’m the one who made it up! …. So, I’m sticking with good ol’ Vegetable Soup because that’s what I wanted, and the intention is that you can put whatever vegetables you have on hand in the pot.
I’ve been really into making up my own soup recipes and homemade ice cream recipes lately…more posts about ice cream at a later date. Back to soup.
So like I said, this soup’s intention is to throw in whatever vegetables you have in the fridge at the time. So feel free to omit or add to any of the vegetables I have listed in the recipe. I’m not sure you can go wrong. I cut my vegetables in big chunks to pair it well with the thin juice. Husband requested the noodles and I think it was a good call.
Try this one out and let me know what you think!
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 Onion, Cut into decent size chunks
1 Clove of Garlic Minced
1 Zucchini, Cut into 1/2 in – 1 in chunks
2 Carrots, Cut into large chunks
2 Cups Green Beans, Halfed
4 Potatoes, Cut into 1 in cubes
6 Cups of Beef Broth or Stock (I cheat and used bouillon)
Can of Stewed Tomatoes
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Basil
2 Dashes of Cayenne Pepper
1/2 lb Spiral Pasta
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1. Add olive oil to a large stock pot over medium heat. Place onions in the pot with a few dashes of salt and cook for 5 min. Add garlic and cook until fragrant or 1 minute. Add all other vegetables to the onions and cook for 5 minutes.
2. Pour beef broth in with the vegetables until the vegetables are just covered. Add the can of stewed tomatoes, basil and cayenne. Bring to a boil and then drop temperature to medium-low.
3. Cook until potatoes are close to tender and then add noodles. When noodles and potatoes are tender remove from heat. Serve with yummy buttered homemade bread! Serves 6.
