Vegetable SoupSubmitted by: MARTHAFROMMASS
IntroductionThis is a great vegetable soup. It is very filling, easy to make, high in vegetables and low in calories. I like it slightly spicier so I shake in some red pepper flakes.

1 yellow onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
4 teaspoons of garlic, chopped (or 5 cloves of chopped garlic)
8 Cups of Vegetable Stock (Nature's Promise used here)
2 Cups water
3 tablespoons of tomato paste
2 cups of frozen, cut green beans
3/4 head of green cabbage, chopped
1 Can diced tomatoes (I use the kind with green chiles for a little zest)
2 1/2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning (or substitute 1 1/4 each of dried basil and dried oregano)
1 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt
2 small zucchini
Optional: several shakes of red pepper flakes. You could also add other vegetables of your choice, or more water if you like it more "soupy" and less like vegetable stew.
Number of Servings: 16
