Most of the ingredients for a simple vegetable soup like this can be stored in your pantry and freezer for when when you need that comfy, cozy, quick, feel-good meal. This is a family go-to when the days begin to get a little cooler and we want comfort in a bowl.

1/4 cup vegetable broth for sautéing

1 large sweet onion, diced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

2 large celery ribs, chopped

1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained

5 to 6 cups vegetable broth

3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

1/3 cup fresh parsley

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup frozen sweet corn

Freshly cracked black pepper and salt to taste

For Serving:

Fresh spinach or kale, leaves or chopped

Serrano or jalapeno pepper, sliced

1. Prep and chop all ingredients.

2. In a large soup pot heat the 1/4 cup vegetable broth and then add in the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery over medium high heat. Sauté for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

3. Add in the diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, potatoes, dried thyme, and bay leaves. Reduce to a medium low heat and slightly cover. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are tender but not mushy.

5. Serve each bowl with fresh spinach leaves or chopped fresh kale, and Serrano or jalapeño slices (optional).

Note: For a heartier soup feel free to add in beans of choice (kidney, a white bean, or chickpeas work well), a whole grain, or a whole grain noodle.
