I’m cold, my friend!
It is a typical winter day.
Cold with a high in the low 30’s.
You might find me decorating the house for the winter months while wearing layers of cardigans!
The chill of winter has taken hold of me and my toes are cold all the time.
It happens every winter…once my toes are cold, it is hard to warm them up!
A few things warm me up…my fuzzy socks, a long bubble bath, and our dog Bentley flopping his body on my feet!
This is perfect soup weather!
To go along with my resolution to eat healthier, I am making this hearty veggie soup all the time.
I mean ALL the time!
It warms me up, fills me up, and ranks high on the “How many veggies did you eat today?” chart!
Let’s start with a little chopping! (but not too much!)
Make a Healthy Winter Vegetable Soup
The beauty of this soup is that you can personalize it!
My recipe calls for mushrooms.
Don’t like mushrooms? Leave them out!
My recipe doesn’t have zucchini.
But it you are dying for some zucchini? Throw it in!
Chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, and onion are key.
As are the black beans.
And the chili powder…
Everything else is negotiable!
Olive oil, green peppers, onion, and salt are the first layer of flavor.
A pile of chopped vegetables is so satisfying!
Next comes the chicken broth.
After the chicken broth and some simmering, everything else (seasonings, beans, chicken) gets thrown in.
15 minutes of simmering and you throw in some baby spinach. Let the spinach wilt in the soup and it is ready to eat!
By this time, my mouth is watering and I can’t wait to fill my bowl!
Salt to taste and…
Soup’s on, everyone!
Serve with oyster soup crackers and enjoy!
