1 T olive oil
1 sweet onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 carrots, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
2 quarts of vegetable broth
2 cans 14.5 oz diced tomatoes - or fresh from the garden is even better
4 medium potatoes (russet, yellow or red)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup green beans or asparagus
1 cup corn
1/4 C soy sauce, optional
1 T toasted sesame oil, optional
1. Add 1 T olive oil to a pot on medium heat and sauté onions until translucent.
2. Add carrots, celery and garlic. Sauté for an additional 2-4 minutes. (Add a little water to the pan to help them soften and keep the garlic from burning if you need to.)
3. Add vegetable broth, diced tomatoes, potatoes and salt and pepper to the pot. Bring to a boil.
4. Once boiling, add green beans or asparagus, reduce heat and simmer for 25 -30 minutes until potatoes are tender.
5. Add corn and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
- You could freeze this in single serving portions and have a great last minute lunch or dinner when you don't have time to cook or when you get back from a trip! Don't sleep on this time saver.
- I like use frozen corn always and green beans if they aren't available fresh.
- If you choose to add some soy sauce or toasted sesame oil, do it in step 3. ( 1/4 cup soy sauce and/or 1 T toasted sesame oil. I promise it adds so much flavor to your broth. Especially if you are using a broth made from vegetable scraps like my zero waste vegetable broth.
