Coach Nicole's Cold Weather Vegi Stew

Introduction

I love making this soup throughout the fall and winter. It's filling, healthy and stores well. Perfect with a grilled cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread.

Directions

Heat oil in a large pot on medium heat.
Add onion and garlic, cook until onion is transluscent, about 5 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients (except spinach) to the pot and bring to a low boil.
Simmer, covered, for one hour, stirring occasionally. Add frozen spinach during last 10 minutes of cooking.

Adjust seasoning to taste--almost any combination of your favorite seasonings will work well in this soup. Refrigerate, covered, for about a week. This soup also freezes well. When reheating, add a little more water to reach desired consistency.

Number of Servings: 8

    For those who can't have pasta. Add spaghetti squash. It gives you the feeling of having past without the calories. - 4/19/08

    This sounds yummy with one problem: I would not be able to have the pasta in it. That adds too many calories to it! So instead of a soup mix with pasta, use the mixed dried bean packaets sold in regular stores. - 11/16/07

    I am making this tonight! I am a big fan of Bob's Red Mill products and I have made his soup, and the additions to it sound wonderful! I think I will substitute fresh baby spinich for the frozen though and add it the last 2 or 3 minutes of cooking! - 11/15/07

  • mmmm delicious and easy to make! to make it extra healthy, omit the oil completely and just dry saute. you don't need a non-stick pan, just add the onions and garlic to a dry pot and add water one tbsp at a time if they start sticking :) - 3/13/12
