Easiest (and yummiest) Vegetable Soup You Will Ever Make

I have been baking for the race all day today and didn’t have time to do my regular lunch post! I spoke with the race director and it didn’t look like the $500 vendor fee could be reduced so what I am probably going to do is donate my bars for the runner’s post race. I may also be selling some to the race and then that money will be donated to charity. It looks like the best option and will still give my bakery lots of exposure. The only issue I have right now is seeing how many of these bars I can make before the big day! The clock is ticking! I also need to order more business cards, prepare the tags, and ingredient list stickers!!

For dinner tonight I wanted something very quick, so I made one of my all time favourite vegetable soups that I haven’t made in ages. I actually can’t believe that I haven’t shared this with you before!

The star of the show: Low Sodium V8

Onion and pepper:

Plus spinach:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups low sodium V8
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 cup frozen veggies
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 whole pepper, chopped
  • parsley
  • Black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)

Directions: Throw all ingredients into a pot and stir. Cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes until veggies are tender. Serve with bread or crackers. I garnished my soup with hulled hemp seeds and it was fab. You can also put a dallop of yogurt on top too!

I had my soup with Mary’s Crackers. I had two bowls of the soup (the entire pot!!):

Sorry to hear about the fee not being lowered. However, I’m sure that it will still be a great promotion for the Glow Bakery! Good luck with the preparation! :)

Now that’s my kind of soup! ;) Haha – quick, simple, healthy, AND delicious. Sounds like the perfect meal to turn to when you just don’t have time to spend in the kitchen. Thanks for the recipe!

What a brilliant idea for veggie soup. This sounds perfect when you are craving a fresh soup in a hurry and you don’t want to resort to the old can in the pantry.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow good luck with getting everything ready for the race, sounds like it’s a ton of work but I’m sure it will be worth it!

The soup looks fantastic as well, nice and simple just like i like things. You can always throw a can of beans in there as well. Or I would. I love my beans. Lol.

My mom taught me how to use frozen veggies and that low sodium V8 to make soup when I moved into my apartment! I love your additions of spinach and things, soo cheap, delish, and healthy! :)

Hey! I need advice, I would be happy if you could help me :)
I’m 19 year old student, now at the end of my first year at the veterinary university. These last few days I’ve been starving all the time! I tried to exercise throughout the year, although it’s been hard, since I didn’t have time even to sleep 6 hours a day. Now I have little more time, so I quickly started roller blading and bicycling for about an hour a day. (4 days in a row to be exact :D ) Do you think this is the reason I am so hungry? I always try to loose some weight, although I am not fat, but not happy with my body. MAybe I’m not eating enough. Should I keep exercising every day, or just try to rest for a while after a hard year in school?
*confused*

p.s. I really admire you, your lifestyle, your life philosophy. You are truly an inspiration!
