Hearty Veggie Soup

bowl of veggie soupI could eat soup 365 days a year; that’s how much I love it! I don’t want it to be fancy or doused in sodium, just rich in flavour, hearty and nutritious!

My veggie soup is bound to be your next go-to soup recipe. It’s loaded with wholesome veggies, easy to make, and packed with nutrients! I love pairing this soup with a few quinoa crackers or but all the hearty veggies make it just as tasty to enjoy on its own. So what are you waiting for, get that chopping block ready and let’s do this!

Veggie soup is one of the easiest soups to make. The secret is to add YOUR favourite vegetables. The consistency of the vegetables is also up to you. Like veggies to be a little more solid and chunky? Boil the soup for a a little less time. Like the veggies to be a little more soft/creamy? Cook a little longer. The options and flavours are endless.

  1. This soup looks great. Best of all it supports my style of eating healthy. Most soups are loaded with sodium. This seems like a great one to add to the recipe book.

    1. Agree, most canned soups are filled with sodium! It’s always nice when you get to choose what goes in the food you eat 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    Made this and it was really tasty. I completely agree with the canned soup being loaded with sodium. I prefer making fresh soups. Great recipe!
