Homemade Vegetable Soup

Comfort food is what is required these days.
So today that meant homemade veggie soup.
It's super easy to make.
And the aroma of simmering soup makes ones house smell yummy. 

Homemade Vegetable Soup
Chop your favorite veggies*  into bite size pieces and dump them into a nice big cooking pot.  
Cover with  low sodium chicken broth (or water).
Add herbs and spices of your choice*.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for an hour or so.
Serve piping hot from the stove, with a crusty baguette slathered in sweet cream butter.

*Today I used: Celery, onion, carrots, tomato, yellow summer squash, cauliflower, and spinach
 with black pepper, red pepper flakes, sage, oregano and nutmeg.
But you may use any combination of veggies, herbs and spices that you like. 


  1. Looks very tasty, and real comfort food ((((hugs)))) x

  2. That soup sounds and looks delicious.

    I could certainly do with it now
    as it is very cold here
    raining heavily and just miserable.

    Would love to have that soup and some fresh bread rolls to warm me up!

    Thanks for posting.
