While the weather outside is still cold and gloomy, I figured I’d get this Loaded Vegetable Soup recipe on the blog to help warm everybody up! What’s great about this soup is that it’s made with mostly canned vegetables and long-lasting ingredients such as frozen okra, onions and garlic. It can be cooked up quickly and is hearty and filling!
You’ll start by sautéing the onions, garlic, carrots and spices in a large pot (or deep skillet). This step really brings out the flavor and fragrance of the ingredients. After about three minutes of sautéing, you’ll pour the rest of the ingredients into the pot which include the tomato sauce, water, and all the vegetables. Make sure to drain the excess water from the canned vegetables before adding to the pot!
It doesn’t take long to cook the vegetables through. The carrots and okra will take the longest to soften. It took me about 25 minutes to finish the soup which consisted of boiling and simmering. You can serve this delicious vegetable soup with your choice of bread or crackers for a filling meal. It’s also an easy way to get your kids to eat their vegetables in one sitting. c(= Read on for the super easy recipe below!
