Winters Best Soup

Winter's Best Soup is just that -- the best! This easy soup recipe has a lot of hearty ingredients, but that's what makes it so delicious. You can feel good when you're done cooking this soup, knowing you're giving your family something healthy and substantial to eat. This soup does not include any meat because it's chock full of so many amazing vegetables, however, if you'd like to include a protein, we'd suggest shredded chicken since this soup is made with a chicken broth. This soup is best served with a thick and toasty piece of bread for dipping and sopping up every last bit of the bowl.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced zucchini
  • 1 cup diced yellow squash
  • 1/2 cup diced orange bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 can cannellini beans, well drained
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups tomato juice (such as V8)
  • 2 cups frozen peas

Instructions

  1. In a five-quart Dutch oven or soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook for 2 minutes. Mash the garlic with the salt and mince finely, then add to the pot with the cayenne. Cover the pot, lower the heat and cook 4 minutes.

  2. Uncover, and then add the broth, zucchini, bell peppers, tomato juice, and beans. Cover and cook 8 minutes until all vegetables are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the peas, bring to a simmer and cook one to two more minutes, then serve in deep bowls.

Such a delicious and hearty, warming meal. We added some fresh chili (because we felt like it!), tossed some cilantro leaves on top and had it with some fresh and crunchy Italian bread. So good! Everyone in the family thought it was great and it would be the perfect thing for an informal get together. Easy to prepare and very good to eat!

This is the most jam-packed soup I have ever seen! All of those beautiful vegetables. If you are not able to find all of them in season, feel free to try frozen. Also, mix and match your favorite veggies. Be sure to use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth to ensure that this is a vegetarian soup.

This soup looks similar to minestrone but it different enough that it is making. I never think to add zucchini or summer squash to soups, but what a great idea! And although I don't make soup as often during the summer, this would be a great way to use up extra zucchini from the garden! This soup is hearty enough that it could be served as a meal along with salad and some nice crusty bread. I look forward to trying this recipe soon!

Being in the middle of a scorching summer here, its hard to think about hot soup. However Im certainly saving this recipe for winter time. Theres nothing nicer than a steam bowl of soup with some lovely crusty bread. And this soup, with its wide variety of vegetables, is sure to be packed full of goodness
