Recipe: Winter Veggie Soup

Doesn't this look delish? I bought the ingredients to try this recipe last week, and just never got around to it. It made for a tasty lunch today though!

Winter Vegetable Soup

  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 small potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


In a medium saucepan, saute onions in oil until tender. Add the next four ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli, salt if desired and pepper; simmer, uncovered, for 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

It took me about thirty minutes from start to finish (I chop pretty slowly). Best part of this recipe? The portions described above are just enough for two people - so no leftover soup for weeks on end. Of course you could double or even triple the recipe if you wanted to, but we hate leftovers here, so one serve meals rock. I also used low-sodium chicken broth/stock to make it slightly healthier.
