Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Soup
1 medium onion, diced
2 tbsp olive oil

4 vegetable cubes (dissolved into 6 cups of boiled water)

1 680g (24 oz) bottle of strained tomatoes with basil

1 small red pepper, diced
3 to 4 carrots, diced
4 ribs of celery, diced
5 medium potatoes, diced

1 540ml (~19 oz) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Salt, pepper, parsley, and Italian seasoning to taste

In a large pot, saute the onions in the olive oil until soft.  Add the vegetable broth and strained tomatoes. Stir. Add salt, pepper, parsley, and Italian seasoning.  Bring to boil and then add in the diced vegetables and the kidney beans (if you don't want the beans too soft, add them in a bit later). Once the soup comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and gently simmer, partially covered, for about 50 minutes until the potatoes and carrots can be easily pierced with a fork.  Taste test and add more seasoning if needed.

As always, have fun and make it your own.  ♥
