What do you put in vegetable soup?

My favorite vegetables to put in vegetable soup are broccoli, carrots and peas. However I’ve also added celery, green beans, corn and cauliflower to mine and it works out well. I’m a big fan of using what you have on hand, so raid the fridge and see what you have!

What is the best seasoning for vegetable soup?

I kept this recipe very simple and added sage, which is my favorite vegetable soup seasoning, and some herb-blend seasoning. You can find this blend at most every grocery store, available from a variety of brands. Choose your favorite!

How do you make vegetable soup quickly?

Need dinner fast? Here are several hacks I’ve done to make this recipe come together even faster:

  • Use frozen vegetables that steam in the bag. You’ll need two 12-oz bags. Microwave them separately for 5 minutes each, then add them to the soup, reducing the cooking time by half in each step.
  • Don’t like frozen vegetables? Use fresh, but do all the chopping and cutting the night before. That way, you don’t have to take the time the night dinner is served! You can also steam the fresh vegetables in the microwave to cut down on time. Simply put them in a glass or ceramic bowl with 3 TBSP water. Cover and microwave for 5-7 minutes. Then add them to the recipe and decrease the cooking time by half in each step.
  • Don’t even want to bother steaming vegetables? Use canned vegetables! No microwaving necessary and you can still decrease the cooking time by half.

  2. This was FABULOUS!!!! A great meal for Meatless Monday. :-) I left out the sage because my family isn&#39;t a fan of it - I added some onion powder instead. Yummy! Can&#39;t wait for the leftovers.
  3. I tried this soup and it was to me absolutely wonderful....I used frozen vegetables and did not cook it quiet as long. I do love these type recipes
