Posted on Jan. 22nd 2011 No Comments »

This is a great basic vegetable soup. Get creative -  add some pasta, crusty bread or cheese to it to give it a different punch.

  • 2 Tbl Olive Oil
  • stalk of celery
  • Bag of Carrots
  • 2 cups poatos
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 2 cups zucchini
  • 1 16 oz of tomato paste
  • 10 cups of Vegetable broth
  • 2 14oz cans of White Kidney beans
  • 5 garlic cloves - crushed
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

In your largest thick-bottomed pot over medium heat combine the olive oil, celery, garlic, carrot, potato and onion. Cook for 10 -15 minutes sweating the vegetables, but avoid any browning.   Add the 10 cups of vegetable broth along with the can of tomato paste  and two cans of beans. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and add the zucchini and broccoli simmer until the greens are tender, about 15 minutes.

Serve immediately, or cool and refrigerate overnight. Finish each serving with a drizzle of olive oil and some chopped olives or some Parmesan cheese.

Prep time: 20min - Cook time: 60 min
