- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 lg yellow onion (chopped)
- 2 carrots (chopped)
- 2 stalks of celery
- 2 large cans vegetable stock
- ½ lb potatoes (cut into chunks)
- 1 tbsp thyme
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 lg can of diced tomatoes
- ¼ lb green beans
Place the olive oil into a stock pot and let it warm up. Add onion, celery and carrots and cook them until they are soft.
Next, add water potatoes and seasonings and bring soup to a boil. After that you should turn down the heat to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes.
After the potatoes feel tender add tomatoes and green beans. Let your soup simmer for an additional 20 minutes. Serve with a big hunk of crusty bread.
This soup will warm you all the way down to your toes. Its great to serve on those cold winter nights.
If you want to make vegetable beef soup all you need to do is add browned ground beef or cooked stew beef. You can also add chicken or turkey if you like white meats better.
