Garden Vegetable Soup

February 15, 2018Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2018

Garden Vegetable Soup is a delightful, healthy, low calorie soup that’s good for what ails ya! It’s chocked full of veggies like carrots, green beans, lima beans, corn, leeks, celery, red potatoes, tomatoes and mushrooms. Then it’s seasoned with a little parsley, thyme, marjoram, bay leaves and salt and pepper. It’s super easy since it’s made in the crockpot. I used a mixture of fresh and frozen veggies and it turned out wonderfully.

John and I flew up to Spokane, Washington, for a wedding in the beginning of January. Yes, there was ice and snow on the ground, but I have to admit, I LOVED Spokane. It’s such a clean, pristine city. I told John that city would be one of the few northern cities (the other being Colorado Springs), that I would ever consider moving to in retirement. I think I would really struggle living around the Great Lakes Region because of having 300+ days a year of cloudy, gloomy weather. I suppose that’s why I’ve grown to love Texas over the years. (Even though it has ridiculously hot weather in the summer). I love the big blue skies and loads of sunshine. Yessiree, that natural vitamin D is a huge mood enhancer. 🙂

Anyway, on our way out we stopped at one of the restaurants at the airport to pick up some dinner for our flight home. I got a Garden Vegetable Soup at one of the places that was fantastic. I thought to myself, why don’t I make more homemade vegetable soups like this one? That soup actually had a small digitali-type pasta in the recipe. I omitted pasta because I was trying to keep the recipe gluten free. I came up with my own version that turned out quite tasty. I wanted to keep the recipe vegan, so I chose to omit beef broth, consomme or bouillon. Those ingredients would have enhanced taste, but I tried to keep the recipe simpler and healthier.

I also chose to make this easy recipe in the crockpot so I didn’t have to attend to the stove for an hour or so while everything cooked. It was easy and delicious. Add some gluten free bread or rolls and you have a match made in heaven. It’s terrific for lunches or to warm up on cold, winter days. Garden Vegetable Soup is a way to get a healthy, delicious meal that’s low on calories, but totally satisfying and filling.
