Meatless Monday

Meatless Monday is a worldwide trend of having a  meatless dinner on Monday night. Since it’s already chilly and cold here in New Hampshire, I’ve decided to share a veggie soup recipe with ya’ll. I’ve also been feeling a bit ill myself, so I figured this would spark me right up.

Veggie Soup

  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 handful baby carrots
  • 3 stalks celery roughly chopped
  • 2 potatoes cubed into bite size pieces
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 bag mixed frozen veggies
  • herbs of choice
  • 4 cups of water
  • salt, pepper & red pepper flakes – to taste
  • 1 C whole grain pasta, brown rice or quinoa, cooked
– In a large stock pot over medium heat saute the onions in 1 tablespoon olive oil until translucent
– Add the garlic, carrots and celery and cook for 5 minutes
– Add everything else (except pasta) and bring to a boil
– Simmer for however long you have 20 minutes – an hour
– Add in pasta/rice and boil until warmed.
-All Done!
This is a great and healthy meal, especially for those trying to lose weight. Vegetable soup can be as low as 80 calories per cup and it leaves you full, warm, and satisfied.
**Remember to forget that diet, and just eat healthy.**
Best Health,
Nicole
