Bean Veggie Soup - Mmmmm!
1 packet Knorr vegetable soup base
4 cups water (more or less depending on how thick you like soup)
1 cup each assorted fresh vegs (I use celery,
cauliflower, and tomatoes)
2 cloves garlic
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium saucepan, empty Knorr veg. soup base into 4 cups of water. Slowly bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer.
Meanwhile, in a dutch oven, heat the olive oil slowly and pour in the cups of vegetables. Let the veggies simmer in the oil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Put in the garlic next. Then, pour in the cans of beans.
Finally, add the broth into the dutch oven with the veggies and beans. Bring this to a boil and then let simmer until veggies are cooked. Add Mrs. Dash, salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste. The longer this soup simmers, the better it tastes! Enjoy! Any comments? E-mail me!
