Ultimate Veggie Soup

by Meghann on October 20, 2008

I was on a mission tonight to load my freezer up with delicious homemade vegetable soup. With the weather changing I have been craving soup and easy to grab frozen soup makes for great quick lunch time meals.

I might have gone a little crazy with the vegetables tonight. I was basically tossing in everything I had in my fridge. I was throwing the vegetables in a little too fast and wasn’t exactly cutting them down to bits size pieces. If I could go back I would take the time and chop the vegetables down to bits and pieces, rather then large chunks. Besides that, the soup was amazing and I know have 4 servings in my freezer ready to eaten through out the winter. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ultimate Vegetable Soup

  • Onion
  • Carrots
  • Eggplant
  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms
  • Corn
  • Green Beans
  • Tomatoes
  • Chick Peas
  • Whole Wheat Egg Noodles
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Tomato Paste
  • Vegetable Stock
  • Garlic
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Oregano
  • Chili Powder

I put all the veggies into a large pot and cooked them until they were soft. I added the seasonings, tomato sauce, tomato paste, & vegetable stock, then brought to a boil. I added the egg noodles and reduced the heat and simmered for 20 minutes. I then tasted it and added more seasonings as needed.

Alongside my soup I had a slice of Dave’s Amazing Bread toasted with a slice of fat free swiss cheese melted on top.

The cheesey bread was perfect for soup dipping. ๐Ÿ™‚

For dessert I finally got to break into my left over cupcake which Caitlin brought over on Friday.

After three days in the fridge this cupcake was still amazing. I will have to find the Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix and make a batch of these myself for my next special occasion.

I think the extra cheese and crackers really did the trick for me at lunch today because I had no need for a snack this afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚ I even was able to take Abbie for a nice walk after work before I started making dinner. I need to eat cheese and crackers more often!

I got the new SELF in the mail today so I am going to heat up a cup of tea and sit back and relax with the mag. Sweet dreams everyone!
