There’s nothing better than nice bowl of soup to cure your winter blues. During the winter months, I like to make a homemade batch of soup every Sunday for dinner. This winter vegetable soup has been one of my favorites to prepare since the weather turned cold. This recipe is easy and delicious with a comfort food flare. You can also sub in some of your favorite veggies. ENJOY!
- 2 cups diced butternut squash (pro tip: most grocery stores offer butternut squash precut during the fall/winter months, check your precut veggies section for this..it will save you time!)
- 2 cups fresh green beans
- 1 cup of diced carrots
- 1 small yellow squash or zucchini (add both you like!)
- 1/2 small white onion, diced
- 1 TBSP butter
- 1-2 medium to large sized russet potatoes
- 1 can of mixed beans
- 1 can of white hominy
- 16 -32 oz of vegetable broth (depending on how big of a batch you want to make). I always look for organic and low sodium options
- Spices (add to your taste): minced garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, parsley
How to make:
- Start by lightly coating a large soup kettle with some cooking oil. Combine the diced onion, minced garlic and butter in the soup kettle and heat on medium till the onion is soft.
- Prep the other ingredients:
- Wash and cut the green beans down to 1″ pieces, wash and dice the carrots and squash/zucchini
- Skin and dice the potatoes
- Drain and rinse the beans and hominy
- Add the vegetable broth and bring to a simmer
- Stir in spices to taste
- Add the rest of the vegetables and bring soup to a boil. Once soup is at a boil, reduce heat and let soup cook for 20 – 30 minutes.
- If the potatoes and carrots seem cooked through, you are ready to plate!
- I like adding garnishes of fresh cilantro and cheese to the top of this soup, it also goes well with a grilled cheese sandwich or some crackers.
