I have been making freezer meals so we’ll have food to eat when our little girl arrives. Minestrone soup is one of the recipes that I have frozen. It’s my favorite soup, healthy with lots of veggies (mostly from our veggie garden).
Lots of great veggies coming from the garden, so I made a simple veggie soup:
Potatoes, tomatoes, corn, squash, zucchini, onion, tomatoes…all of it came from the garden.
adapted to vegan from this recipe
I made this for a very special friend of mine.
I have been sick all week with a sinus infection, so I was thankful to have made a batch of vegetable soup last week. Another nice thing was all the veggies came fresh from the garden. I just chopped them up and added to the crockpot, along with a can of kidney beans, 4 cups of veggie stock, 2 cups of water, large can of tomato sauce, and the usual seasonings [4 cloves of garlic, bay leaves, italian herbs, S+P].
beans soaked overnight
I used these beans to make a very hearty soup and even made vegan cornbread.
I have been sick this week with a cold :( I’ve pretty much been eating soups. I made a tofu noodle soup and the potato soup below. No pretty picture, just a pic of the soup in the pot! It was delicious!

I have been pretty busy this month with work and planning a big 1920′s style holiday party. I hope to post some great pics of delicious food next week from the party! I’m behind on my daily posts and I hope to make more time to post pics.
When I know I’m going to be very busy I love making dishes that will feed us for a few meals. Stir-fry is great, lasagna and crockpot soups.
Last week, I made a big pot of fresh veggie tomato based soup. We still have plenty left after a week and I even gave some to a friend.
The other day, I made cabbage soup in my crockpot. It turned out delicious. I had quite a few fresh veggies like green beans, carrots and potatoes that I also added, along with a can of cannellini beans.
Cabbage is a great way to detox your body and add some roughage to your diet. This soup is fresh, full of vitamins, and is very good for you.
First I washed and cut the veggies. I used 2 carrots, 1 tomato, about a cup of green beans, 1 or 2 potatoes and 1 small head of cabbage. I filled the crockpot with water and added a bay leaf and 2-3 small veggie seasoning cubes. Cook on high for 6 hours, stir every so often. Near the end I added a can of white beans and adjusted the seasonings. I also added pepper, salt, cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes & banana pepper slices (I wanted it spicy).
Plain & simple, it’s good for you!
This has been cooking in my crockpot all day….
