My Mom made a version of this soup growing up. Now that I have two kids of my own, I see why: it’s easy, nutritious and tastes delicious! Basically there are a few basic ingredients and the rest is optional. It’s super-easy to customize this soup to your tastes!

Instructions

  1. 1In a large sauce pot:
  2. 2Sautee diced onion until just tender in the olive oil (2-3 minutes) over medium heat.
  3. 3Add can of diced tomatoes. For a more tomato-based taste, puree the tomatoes in the blender or food processor for about 30 seconds to smooth.
  4. 4Add frozen vegetables, making sure they are separated (pound lightly for about 10 seconds to break up chunks of frozen vegetables)
  5. 5Add optional ingredients
  6. 6Add six cups of water
  7. 7Add salt and pepper to taste
  8. 8Simmer on low heat for 45 minutes to an hour
  9. 9Enjoy!
