Vegetable Soup


Pat from Back Porch Musings posted on Sunday that she made a big batch of vegetable soup. It sounded so good to me that I put down the computer and made some for myself! Bob had already planned dinner for Sunday night, so I saved it for Monday, when Bob had a dinner meeting. So, on this cold, wet, foggy last-day-of-summer day, I had a fabulous vegetable soup.

Pat said that she uses what she had, so here is the recipe I came up with using what I already had....

2 carrots, sliced
1/2 c sliced mushrooms
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can green beans
1 can kidney beans
2 cans beef broth
2 basil leaves rolled and cut into thin slices
1 twig of thyme

Saute the onions, carrots, mushrooms and garlic in enough olive oil to brown the vegetables. Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer on the stove a couple of hours. Cool, refrigerate and eat the next day!! Serve with garlic toast.

Thank you Pat, for the inspiration!
