Hey there everybody…just popping in to share this super simple easy one pot vegetable soup recipe. This is one of those recipes that you can change to fit your family’s tastes, likes, and dislikes. Personally, I don’t enjoy lima beans, so I don’t put them in this soup. If you adore lima beans…definitely dump them in! My mom always added cabbage, but I don’t like that either. The squash family (zucchini, acorn squash, etc.) tends to get mushy as the soup cooks, so I avoid it as well. Most other vegetables work fine. I use canned goods (broth, tomato juice, tomatoes) straight off the grocery store shelf. If you have juice or veggies you have canned yourself…all the better. Less preservatives for sure.

Don’t be tempted to add more pasta. It somehow takes on a life of its own and multiplies like mad. If it makes the soup too thick, just add more beef broth or tomato juice. The bay leaf and celery salt are optional, but they really do add a nice flavor. Sometimes in place of the bay leaf, I add fresh thyme.

This makes a huge pot and freezes well. When it’s cooking, the scent fills your house and just screams comfort food. This one pot vegetable soup goes great with hot crusty bread. If you want to try your hand at baking your own, here’s my recipe for 4 Ingredient Round Bread.

I’ve made this one pot vegetable soup so many times that I know the recipe by heart…but each time I make it, it tastes just a bit different than the time before. If you have time, it’s delicious to make a pot roast, and use that meat for the vegetable soup. Adding the broth from the pot roast to the soup makes it taste rich and hearty. Happy soup making!
