Easy soup alert!

I wish I could say this is a recipe I make for my whole family but it’s not. This is one I keep for myself and they know not to touch it. You can totally share if that’s something you’re in to.

This is a recipe I make every single week in the fall and winter. It is so good, its healthy, and easy to make. Some people call this ‘weight loss soup’, I try not to say that because eating this soup isn’t going to make you lose weight, lets be honest. It is low carb though, it keeps you full it really is great for you. So it will assist in your weight loss journey.

It’s almost like a kitchen sink recipe, because I normally just throw whatever veggies I have in my refrigerator into the soup. You know those ones that you plan on eating or juicing and never do. Don’t let them go to waste, throw them in your soup get those veggies in!

These ingredients are just what I used. You can add and subtract any veggies or meat that you want. Chicken, ground beef or ground turkey, or maybe you want to add rice or pasta? It all works. You’re the chef here 🙂 ***If you add pasta, I would cook it in a separate pot and add it to individual bowls as you eat it so it doesn’t suck up all the broth over time.***

ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bag of frozen green beans
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic (sometimes I add more. Depends on how much you like garlic)
  • 2 zucchini chopped
  • 2 yellow squash chopped
  • 3 cups of kale
  • half a head of cabbage chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 32 oz veggie broth
  • 1 can of pinto beans
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 6 tbsp Italian seasoning (you may need more depending on how much flavor you want in your soup)
  • 2 bay leaves

directions:

  • heat oil in pot on medium-high
  • add garlic, carrots, onion, celery and cook until tender. (about 10 minutes)
  • Once carrots and celery are tender and onion is translucent add the chicken broth and veggie broth, green beans, pinto beans, zucchini, squash, kale, cabbage, can of tomatoes, and all seasoning and bring to a boil.
  • lower heat, add bay leaves and simmer until the veggies are all tender.

You can enjoy this with bread or salad both or on its own. Enjoy!
