Okay so the last soup recipe was full of canned stuff, this one is full of fresh veggies. And, like a big dummy I forgot to take the picture of the ingredients laid out on the counter. Duh! Anyway, this is a yummy, fast vegetable soup recipe and as usual you can sub out for whatever you have in the frig.
1/2 Vidalia onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 zucchini, diced
1 yellow squash, diced
1 large tomato, diced
2 small potatoes, diced
5 cups water
1 vegetable bouillon cube
3/4 cup small pasta (elbows, alphabets, shells, anything small)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
pinch of sugar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
In a large pot heat 1/4 cup water, steam onions until soft.
Add the rest of the vegetables, saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add water, bouillon cube, pasta and tomato paste.
Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat, simmer for 10 or so minutes.
Season with balsamic, sugar and seasoning.
Enjoy! I added a good shot of Frank's hot sauce to spice mine up a bit.
