Winter season means soups are the staples at my house. Soups and freshly baked bread. And because I eat so many different soups in the course of days and weeks, it is mandatory that they be easy to make and be ready within a few.

Today I thought I'd share with you a quick and easy recipe that will make your belly happy while warming you up.
No need for bells and whistles.
A short post for a short recipe.
Shall we?

vegetable soup


  • 1 pack of Low Sodium Vegetable broth ( 32 FL OZ, or about 1L)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Green onions
  • Parsley
  • 1/4 of a red onion
  • Spring potatoes (1-2lbs)
  • Mushrooms
  • 4-5 large tomatoes
  • 1 tsp of Thyme
  • Salt, pepper to taste
Prep your veggies: chop green onions, mushrooms, red onions, parsley; peel your potatoes and cut them in fourth; dice your tomatoes.
In a big pot, warm 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and sauter  red onions, parsley and mushrooms. Add tomatoes and potatoes. Pour over your vegetable stock and add enough boiling water into the pot to cover the potatoes. Bring to boil.

Once the soup starts boiling, reduce the heat. Salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 tsp of Thyme. I used the McCormick All Natural Thyme* but if you have fresh thyme around, you can use that. Cover the pot and let the soup shimmer for another 15-20 min, or until your potatoes are cooked.

Before serving, add green onions to the soup.

Serve hot and preferably with a slice - or two! - of bread.

* I recieved the McCormick All Natural Thyme from Influenster for testing purposes and decided it would be perfect in this soup!

  2. Thank you Anouk. Soups are indeed the perfect cold remedy :)

  3. You make your own bread?? That's amazing! What is your favorite recipe?

  4. I do, Katie! It is quite easy actually! As for my favorite recipe, I have this amazing Amish Bread recipe, which I will share soon on the blog ;)

  5. J'adore les photos d'illustration, elles sont vraiment bien faites.
    Je suis une grande fan de bouillon ( pas trop de soupe genre épaisse par contre) , j'en fais même en été alors qu'il fait super chaud X'D
    Sinon cette soupe a l'air délicieuse car j'aime beaucoup quand il y'a des champignons dans la soupe.
