Vegetable Soup

Vegetable Soup

1 Tbsp olive oil
½ large onion (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
2 celery (chopped)
2 carrots (sliced)
2 cups mixed vegetables (chopped)
½ tsp salt
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
1 bay leaf
8 cups water
2 cubes vegetable stock
Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a large soup or stock pot and add the chopped onion, minced garlic, the carrots, and the celery. Stir for 3-4 minutes until the onions are soft. Add the rest of the vegetables and heat for another minute.

Add salt, garlic powder, thyme and oregano, stirring to coat the vegetables well. Add bay leaf, water or vegetable broth and bring to a simmer. Add vegetable stock cubes and stir to make sure they dissolve.

Allow your soup to simmer until all the vegetables are cooked, about 8-12 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Remove the bay leaf and serve your homemade vegetable soup with a sprinkle of Parmesan and some crusty bread or crackers.
