Perfect Veggie Soup

The Ultimate Comfort Food

Just imagine... a cold winter's day... you step inside, knock the snow off your shoes and the house is filled with the aroma that comes along with a nice hearty soup. What could be better right? What about if this soup happens to be veggie soup?

I am a huge fan of soup. That's no lie. I don't eat it just in the winter but all year long because nothing is more rewarding or satisfying than putting all the effort in to end up with something so delicious and filling. I am going to show you MY version of veggie soup, which is a modified version of a chicken soup without the meat.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans of veggie broth
  • equal parts water
  • 3 large stalks of celery chopped
  • 1 can of green beans (do not strain!)
  • 1/2 can of corn (do not strain!)
  • 4 carrots (peeled and chopped)
  • 4 medium/small potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 1 medium onion or 1-2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • noodles ( I used 3 packs of Ramen broken up without flavor packet, you can use what you wish here, one cup or so of any pasta noodle will do)
  • salt to taste


You want to try to make all the veggies uniform size-wise so you get a little bit of everything together!

Put it all together and what do you got?!

Start off heating butter in the pan and toss in your onion (if you are using one), as well as your carrots, celery and seasonings. After the veggies start to soften add your broth, water and drain your green beans and corn into the pot. (Use no salt added, or low sodium canned veggies so as not to add extra saltiness.) If you want to fuse the flavor of the veggies and broth together now would be a great time to let it simmer!

Once the broth comes to a boil add your potatoes, stirring occasionally. ( If you are using a regular pasta you may want to put this is in the pot next so it will cook as the potatoes cook) Once your potatoes are softened (BUT NOT MUSHY) and the pot is boiling you may add your egg. Just crack the egg and break the yolk with your fingers and drop egg randomly into the pot. You don't want giant boiled eggs in the pot, just nice bite sized pieces stirring as you go. If you are using Ramen add it now, The Ramen will cook through as the eggs do. You are ready to serve!

This makes a huge pot of soup with plenty to go around! Share and enjoy!

Its definitely not difficult at all. I love that the water packed in the canned veg add extra flavor... and the best part is it can be easily modified if someone wants to add chicken broth or something in it. =)
