How to Make Classic Chunky Vegetable Soup

To make this recipe start by preparing the vegetables, the vegetables can vary depending on what you have in the fridge although, a good base to any soup is celery, onion and carrots.

Heat a large heavy bottom pot or Dutch oven on medium high heat, adding a touch of broth, then the onion, garlic, celery and carrots. Cook until lightly tender before adding a can of diced tomatoes and vegetable broth. Once everything has begun to boil add potatoes and green beans, then, lower the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes or until everything is nice and tender. When it’s all said and done you are left with a delicious Chunky Vegetable Soup, fit for hungry bellies! Make it even better by serving it with your favorite crackers or fresh baked bread!
