Vegetable Soup. My Favourite

Updated on September 15, 2013

Vegetable Soup

As we approach Autumn in Australia soup comes back into my thoughts. Vegetable Soup is so delicious cheap and easy to make. Although the temperature in Australia is for the most part very mild compared to other countries. Nevertheless soup is often on the menu in most households, restaurants and cafes. I really enjoy Vegetable soup because you satisfy two needs with one stone; Thirst & hunger.

This soup consists of a three bean mix together with a wide variety of vegetables. Macadamia Nuts and Herbs and Spices to taste.


  • 400 grams Soup bean mix, pre mixed whole packet
  • 400 grams Red Lentils, pre mixed whole packet
  • 4 carrots, large
  • 1 quarter pumpkin, medium size
  • 2 sweet potatoes, average size
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 green capsicum
  • 100 grams green peas
  • cashews 20
  • macadamia nuts 10

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 hours 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 6 hours 15 min
Yields: 10 serves


  1. soak beans mix and lentils overnight in cold water or for a minimum of 5 hours. Clean and prepare vegetables.
  2. Bring to boil. Simmer for one hour.
  3. Whilst this is happening I add the vegetables, sea salt, pepper, garlic, basil, onions, parsley, mixed herbs. turn heat down to very low put on lid & simmer for two hours. check frequently to see that it does not boil dry. After half hour hours add cahew and macadamia nuts & peas. At less than the one hour mark you should be able to tell by sight how well it is cooked and if it ready to serve. Take off heat and leave for ten minutes it is then ready to serve.

      This sounds heavenly and I will surely try this recipe. I became a vegetarian a few months ago and a vegan as of more recently due to the animal cruelty on factory farms, dairy farms in particular, which I just did a hub on. I've been looking for interesting and good tasting recipes so thank you. I cannot wait to try this soup.
