We enjoyed some amazing, unseasonably warm temperatures over the weekend in the Cleve. It was beautiful running weather. Though it was very springlike, it is most definitely not spring yet. It will turn cold and very much back to winter later this week. I don’t do well with cold — I much prefer to be warm and toasty. There is, in my life, no better way to stay warm than with a hot beverage or steaming bowl of soup. And what better way to enjoy soup than to enjoy homemade soup? Mmmm…
This soup — my homemade vegetable soup — is the easiest soup recipe you’ll ever make. It’s gluten-free, vegan, and is incredibly flavorful. It really hits the spot on a cold day. Warm up with a bowl of homemade vegetable soup and some crackers for lunch, or serve with a baguette and salad for dinner. Either way, your tummy will be happy and your body will be warm. Enjoy!
Easy Homemade Vegetable Soup
- 4 C vegetable broth
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 small onion, small diced
- 3 cloves garlic, rough chopped
- 1/2 C shredded carrots
- 2 stalks celery, thin sliced
- 1 Tbsp fresh dill
- 1 tsp salt
- fresh ground pepper, to taste
Pour vegetable broth in a large saucepan and heat over medium-high heat. Add carrots and celery and bring to a low boil. Simmer.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about five minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes.
Stir onions, garlic, dill, salt and pepper in to soup. Bring back to a boil and simmer 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender (or tender to taste). Serve and enjoy!
I’m serious when I say this is one of the easiest — and most flavorful — vegetable soups. I’m not just tooting my own horn. I mean, maybe a little bit, but trust me — it’s great. I’m secretly waiting for it to get cold again so I can make more soup and not feel awkward eating it when it’s in the 60s outside!
Don’t forget (I mentioned this on Friday) — I’m in the midst of categorizing my recipes so if you can’t find something you’re looking for, that’s why. I’m almost done organizing! Phew. 🙂
I do apologize for the brevity of this post. I’ve been fighting off a cold the last few days and need the extra downtime. Or maybe I just need more soup! In any event, don’t forget to link up with Annmarie and me today for Meatless Mondays!
