Throw Together Vegetable Soup
This is just a great vegetable soup to make on a stormy day or when you want to have a big pot of healthy that you don’t have to worry about calories or fat because there is virtually none! It freezes well so I usually make too much and have it for later. My recipe is for a big pot so make sure you’re prepared with one big enough.
1 Zucchini (courgette)
1 green bell pepper
1 small head of cabbage (any type except purple)
1 medium onion
1 large carrot
2-3 ribs of celery
2-3 heads of garlic
½ c coriander (cilantro) leaves
1 package fresh spinach leaves (about 200g)
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 packet Knorr French onion soup mix (in the US Any onion soup/dip packet)
Salt/Pepper to taste
1-2 pints of water (About a 1/3rd up a large pot)
To start put the water on to boil
The great thing about this soup is you chop everything up and throw it in the pot!
Cook until all vegetables are soft and the flavour and taste is to your liking.
This soup is so flexible because you can add any other vegetables you like to eat. You can also add rice or pasta to make it a little heartier but I just enjoy the vegetables. This is also a soup that’s very cleansing if you want to spend a day eating light, you can eat as much as you want to fill you up without the guilt of calories and fat.
