Vegetable Soup Veggies

Submitted by: MARYT307

Introduction

I make this soup with less water so that it's a heavy mix of cooked vegetables, ready to be scooped from the pot and reheated in a bowl for a satisfying lunch or light supper.

Ingredients

    Carrots, 550 gm (4-6 small)
    Celery, 310 gm (one heart)
    Kale, 645 gm (2 small bunches)
    Mushrooms, fresh, 590 gm (I use white and baby portabella)
    Onions, sweet, 387 gm (one large)
    Zucchini, 602 gm (about 4)
    Yellow, orange and red Peppers, 940 gm (2 each)
    Rienzi Diced Tomatoes in Puree, 800 gram can
    Tutorosso Diced tomatoes, 800 gram can
    Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Base- Superior Touch, 3 tsp
    Parsley
    Bay Leaves
    Water
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil (optional)
    Salt (optional)

    Chop all veggies into spoon-sized pieces, snipping the kale leaves into shreds, discarding the larger, tough stems. Mix all in a large stock pot.

    Add 4 or 5 bay leaves and a palmful of dried parsley (or equivalent fresh parsley). Add the cans of diced tomatoes after all of the vegetables have been added. Mix the vegetable bouillon in 1 cup of water to dissolve, add to the pot with additional 7 cups of water (or more, as desired).

    I also add Trader Joe's Veggie Sausages to the soup and let them simmer to heat up for an extra burst of protein (not included in the nutritional contentóneither is the olive oil or the salt). They are not needed for the flavor though!

Directions

Simmer over low heat for several hours until flavors are mixed and vegetables are soft. Carefully remove one veggie sausage, 2 cups of vegetables and some broth for each serving.

Add one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and some salt, as desired, to each bowl to complete the dish!

Makes about 10 2-cup vegetable servings (may need to add extra liquid...I like mine with very little broth!)

    Am brand new to the site and did put the ingredients into the recipe when I entered it! Not sure where they went!! Will have to go back and look for them and see what happened; am somewhat technically-challenged, I imagine!
