Great Taste-No Waste Vegetable Soup

Great Taste - No Waste Vegetable Soup

 

The main ingredients for this soup are found inside your pantry and frig.  I hate to throw away food so when cold weather hits and our food stock needs purging this is my go to soup. Leftovers, fresh vegetables in danger of going bad, as well as expiring fresh juices can be combined to make a delicious, nutritious meal without a trip to the store. Each batch of this soup is as unique as what’s inside your home.  Here’s my recipe for today’s soup:

Base:*

(2) 32 oz. V-8 Juice (about to expire and bought in bulk at Costco)
1) 24 0z. All Natural Pasta Sauce with Mushroom

Leftovers:

Jasmine rice
Home made salsa
Assorted cut vegetables

Fresh Vegetables:

Dandelion Greens – stems removed and cut into 1/2” pieces
Collard Greens – stems removed and cut into 1/2” pieces
Yellow Onion – diced
Red Potatoes – washed thoroughly and diced leaving skin on
Sugar Snap Peas (whole)

Pantry:

All Natural Chopped Tomato’s (without preservatives)

Freezer:

Assorted Soup Vegetables

Spices:

Mint, Italian Seasoning, Salt, Pepper

Meat:

Lean cubed beef browned in olive oil and chopped fresh garlic then add to soup

Place items in crockpot and cook on high for 8 hours. Easily serves a family of six. Leftovers provide hubby’s lunch the following day and I freeze the rest for future meals.

*Tomato Juice or soup could be substituted. Add water to thin condensed soups.
