This soup was good. I think it is a good base for many different ingredients. The only thing that I will keep in mind next time is that it does turn out really thick; more a stew than a soup. I just added more vegetable juice, water and spices.-11 Jun 2001

by Mrs.Edwin

O.K. - how did you get my grandmothers recipe? I haven't made veggie soup for years as my late husband didn't like it. I had an urge for some (we've had dark, cold days this week) so I made it! I used home made beef stock for the base instead of water, stewed tomatoes for the diced, barley for the rice, black beans with the garbanzo. I chose to use frozen veggies because of their flavor and added limas, string beans, garlic, shredded cabbage and some fresh asperagus. Today when I re-heated it, I added a can of beef broth to make it thinner. This is the best veggie soup I've had in years - Thank you, Colleen! Now I'm off to freeze some and send some over to my grandkids.-23 Oct 2004

This was delicious! I've made it a few times, changing some of the ingredients. I like omitting the potato and rice and adding 1/2 cup of barley instead. Freezes well.-14 Oct 2005

Easy Vegetable Pasta Soup Recipe

Easy vegetable pasta soup recipe – this fresh vegetable and pasta all-in-one pot soup is perfect for any weeknight dinner or easy lunch. Nutritious, filling and a satisfying bowl of this soup is very simple and easy to prepare.

If you are running out of easy lunch or dinner ideas then make this super easy pasta soup with vegetables. Loaded with all the goodness of Italian spices and pasta this soup will be comforting and warming.

Moreover, it is a one-pot soup recipe. Meaning, less mess, quick meal prep, and quick cleanup. Isn’t it awesome?

I love making one pot soups. They are filling, nutritious and satisfying. Just making one dish for lunch or dinner is sufficient. No wonder why such recipes are so popular. And if you are also a fan of such dishes then you will also love these healthy barley soup, creamy broccoli soup, soba noodle soup, corn chowder, etc.

Let’s get started with our pasta and vegetable soup.

Black Bean Soup

This quick and easy vegetarian black bean soup is healthy, low-fat, and ready in just 15 minutes. Beans are a great addition to soups for their high protein and fiber content eating a serving (1/2 cup) of black beans provides 7 grams of protein. Serving this soup with a side of brown rice (1 cup of cooked rice) provides an extra 5 grams.

Bring to a boil mashed and whole canned black beans, broth, salsa, and chili powder. Keep it vegan by making the fixings such (vegan cream, vegan cheese) or offer dairy-full toppings like sour cream or shredded cheese.

How to Make the Best Vegetable Soup

We’ll use several simple techniques to build flavor as we cook this soup. Here’s how:

1) Start with the veggies.

We’ll sauté chopped onion, celery, carrots and seasonal vegetables in olive oil, with some salt. This softens them up and enhances their flavors. Adding salt during different stages of the cooking process builds more flavor than simply adding it all at the end.

2) Add fresh minced garlic, curry powder, and dried thyme.

Sautéing these ingredients for about 1 minute wakes up their flavors, but isn’t long enough to risk burning the garlic (burnt garlic tastes awful).

Curry powder is the secret to making this soup so delicious. We aren’t adding much. You probably won’t be able to pinpoint the flavor, but it adds some subtle intrigue and warmth to this soup. I’ve also used curry powder in my lentil soup and chickpea noodle soup as well, and it always works like a charm.

3) Add canned diced tomatoes with their juices.

We’ll cook them all together for a couple of minutes to reduce any tinny flavors. I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes for these photos, but regular diced tomatoes were just as good. I always recommend using Muir Glen brand of tomatoes because they taste the best and come in BPA-free cans.

4) Almost done—add some vegetable broth, water, and more flavorings.

Vegetable broth keeps this soup vegetarian/vegan. We’ll also add bay leaves, red pepper flakes, and a little more salt. If you’re sensitive to spice, you can reduce or omit the red pepper flakes. If you love spice like me, you might even want to double the amount at the end (add to taste). Regardless, we’ll let the soup gently simmer for 25 minutes so the flavors can meld together.

5) Add chopped fresh greens and finally, some fresh lemon juice.

Lastly, we’ll add chopped greens for health bonus points, and simmer for 5 minutes to soften them up. Before serving, we’ll brighten up the soup with a big squeeze of lemon juice (one of my other go-to soup tricks) and add another splash of olive oil for rich flavor. Taste the soup before and after these additions, and you’ll notice a big difference! Finally, season to taste with salt and pepper, as necessary.

Spinach Nutrition: Facts and Benefits

Spinach is very low in calories. In fact, it is one of the most nutritious negative calorie foods out there. A 100 gram portion of the vegetable provides just 23 calories (as per data by the United States Department of Agriculture). It is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals, most notably beta-carotene (a precursor to Vitamin A), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B9 (folate) and Vitamin K, as well as iron, magnesium and manganese. The leafy green is known to help maintain eye health and improve the health of bones. Spinach is also said to regulate blood pressure and fight inflammation in the body.

We took classic tomato soup and gave it the signature Kettle & Fire makeover using our chicken bone broth as the base.
