A cozy homemade soup full of fresh veggies that you can make in a pinch!!!
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion. chopped
  • ½ cup carrots, peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup celery, chopped
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes (if you have your own canned tomatoes, GREAT!)
  • 2 cups potatoes, scrubbed and diced
  • 3 cups stock (vegetable, chicken, or beef)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup fresh sweet corn (you can use frozen if that's what you have available)
  • 1 cup fresh sweet peas (frozen is fine)
  • ½ cup fresh green beans, cut, ends snipped (frozen is fine)
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions and cook for about 2 minutes, until translucent. Then add the carrots and celery. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in the canned tomatoes and add the potatoes. Bring the liquid to a simmer. Pour in the stock. Bring it to a simmer. Add the salt and pepper {see notes} and continue cooking for about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the corn, peas, and green beans. Continue cooking until all the vegetables are tender (check the potatoes).
  4. Serve hot!
  5. This is amazing re-heated and tastes good for days!
I use lots of fresh herbs from my garden in my cooking. This recipe was written with a low budget in mind and fresh herbs can be expensive if you cannot just walk outside and snip a few. The soup will be delicious as the recipe is written but if you would like to season it further feel free to add fresh parsley, oregano, and thyme. Dried Italian seasoning blends also work very well and so does poultry seasoning (which actually does not contain any poultry but is a very versatile herb blend).
