Dinner Tonight: Crockpot Veggie Soup

It's Wednesday, we have some coughs going on around here, and since the weather has been so spotty lately, I am going to guess that some of you do, too. Here's an easy, but hearty, crock pot (or stovetop) dinner for you!

We call this "Grandma Soup" because it's full of the veggies that my grandma would recommend :) 

Basically, we go to the farm and grab any and everything that looks good that day. On this particular day that was carrots, beans, onions, corn, and zucchini. Then I ran into the regular store because I like to add cabbage, celery, and potatoes into this soup! We have a very large crock pot so we can squeeze a lot into this soup. 

  • about 8-10 cups diced veggies of choice, depending on size of your crock pot. I use:
      • Red potatoes, diced
      • Handful of snapped green beans
      • 2-3 diced onions
      • 2 diced zucchini
      • 4 diced carrots
      • 1 ear of corn kernels
      • 3 stalks celery, diced
      • 1/3 head of cabbage, chopped into small pieces
  • 28oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 bottle V8 juice 
  • 1 box Chicken Broth
  • Creole seasoning to taste
*You will need a 50/50 ratio of juice and chicken broth, amount depends on how hearty you want your soup*

Combine all ingredients into crock pot, stir, and cook on low 8 hours OR let all ingredients simmer in a stock pot for about an hour! Serve with grilled cheese, fresh bread, or top with a little Parmesan on its own!
