There’s nothing quite like a big bowl of warm soup; it’s comforting, it’s filling, and it’s a great way to add an extra helping of vegetables to your life! Honestly, if I had it my way, I’d have a bowl of soup every day of my life, no matter what the weather is like outside. And most days, I do!
Here is my go-to recipe for a quick, easy and super tasty vegetable bean soup that requires zero chopping what-so-ever. It’s just a matter of placing all of the ingredients listed below into a pot, heat, and serve! Who said making a feel-good soup needed to be complicated, anyway? (Not me!)
This is how you make it:
1. Add all of the listed ingredients into a 3 quart (or larger) sized pot….
Then, stir! If the onion powder doesn’t completely dissolve, don’t worry – it will once the soup is warmed.
2. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat, then, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 -15 minutes.
That’s it! A hearty, delicious pot of chunky vegetable bean soup in just minutes.
I hope you love this soup as much as we do!
