I really need to eat more vegis and was thinking soup might be good since they are cooked so well. So does anyone have a favorite vegi soup recipe to share. I don't care if it has other stuff like a little meat or pasta or rice, but mainly want to find a tasty way to eat more vegis.

I just throw any vegetables I think will be safe cooked well like carrots, potatoes, onions, etc. into a crock pot with chicken broth, garlic powder, and salt. I'll stir occasionally and leave them until they are mush.

I try to avoid most vegetable soup since a lot of people like to use tomato soup as the base, but other broths (clear ones) work just as well in my opinion.

If you're a novice, I suggest getting some basic cookery books and starting from there. That said, I do recommend making proper bone stock, as packaged stocks are (imho) rubbish and largely defeat the purpose of making soup at all.

In short, though, I brown a little onion or leek (depending on the type of stock used) and may brown some diced root vegies too. Throw in the stock, and maybe some meat off the aforementioned stock bones. Simmer. Throw in any extra vegies that need less cooking time (e.g. green herbs). Serve. Eat.

If you own a blender, you can also puree the soup once the veg have cooked. This can make it easier to digest, especially if you are using veg that would ordinarily be impossible for you to eat.

All the best.

Ivy that sounds so good, and I am not even a big veggie eater. My SIL makes a wonderful homemade chicken soup with potatoes, zucchini, and carrots. She always makes it for me when we are visiting her. Yummy!!!

I hadn't even thought of zucchini, and that is one of my favorite vegetables. Great idea :)
