Both Holly and I were vegetarians for portions of our younger years (we are now equal opportunity eaters-everything in moderation), so we can definitely appreciate a Meatless Monday (or Wednesday, or Friday, whatever). But both of us have husbands that appreciate hearty and filling (and when I say appreciate, I mean live for). Enter this Garden Vegetable Soup.
Chock full of delicious veggies, this soup is both hearty and filling. Easy to throw together and great for leftovers. Serve with crackers or a loaf of crusty bread and you have yourself a fabulous dinner!

Garden Vegetable Soup
This is a easy, hearty, vegetarian soup, perfect for these fall evenings!
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 cup onion diced (approximately 1 large onion)
- 1 cup carrots diced (approximately 2 large)
- 2 cups sweet potatoes peeled and cubed (approximately 1-2 sweet potatoes)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 8 cups vegetable stock
- 2 cups spinach washed with stems removed
- 2 cups green beans chopped
- 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes
- 2 cups corn fresh or frozen
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
In a large dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium high heat.
Add onion, carrot, and sweet potato to the dutch oven and sauté for 5 minutes.
Turn heat to medium, add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
Add vegetable stock, spinach, green beans, tomatoes (with their juices), corn, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
Season with salt to taste.
Ladle into bowls and serve with a crusty french bread.
This is a very adaptable soup. Don't like spinach? Don't add it. Your kids love peas? Throw in a cup of frozen peas. Have some extra zucchini? Shred it and throw it into the pot! Who doesn't love a soup that is both simple and infinitely customizable?
