I love this vegetable soup, but I might have changed it so much it's not quite this recipe. This recipe was the inspiration: I used 2 cans of low salt, low fat chicken stock; 4 c. water; about 6 smallish carrots; 4 stalks of celery, peeled; 2 pinches of dried basil; 2 pinches of dried thyme; a few sprinkles of an onion-based salt-substitute; the liquid from a can of stewed tomatoes; 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed. Boil/simmer this for 30 min. Then added 1 head of cabbage, chopped; the stewed tomatoes; 2 roma tomatoes, quartered; bunch of green beans (1-2 cups?); bunch of crimini mushrooms (1/2 cup?); 1 cut zucchini. Cook for 30 min. more. Add kale, cook for about 10 min. Good soup, or how to get rid of all the veggies in your fridge -- in a good way :-)-25 Oct 2009

Very good recipe, this has to be healthy. I made this last night and went by the recipe and it was great, probably the best vegetable soup I have had. Thanks for the recipe.-20 Jun 2009

This is a great back to basics recipe, which is why I'm giving it a 5-star. It was just what I was looking for. There are so many ways you can expand upon it and still end up with a good tasting, healthy recipe. I changed things up, according to what was in my refrigerator/garden. Added fresh zucchini, tomatoes, garlic, and cilantro. Didn't have green beans or Great Northern beans. Shredded a couple of chicken breasts and tossed them in, just because I'm feeding youngsters who need the protein. Served with grated cheese, rolls, and sour cream. Very satisfying meal. May try ground turkey next time. Thank You!-28 Sep 2009

There is little preparation to making this soup except gathering ingredient and adding them to a large pot:

  1. Diced tomatoes
  2. 16 ounce bag of mixed vegetables (green beans, carrots, corn, peas)

The ingredients are already prepped except for the onion and celery. Chop the onion and celery and add all of the ingredients to a large pot.

Serve this soup in various forms! Add beans, gluten-free pasta noodles and/or cheese and turn it into an Italian vegetable soup. You can serve it for dinner by itself or with cheese quesadillas, fresh bread, or grilled cheese. Leftovers can be packed for school lunches the next day.

How to make clear soup

11. Add 1 tbsp oil and saute 1 teaspoon each of chopped ginger & garlic for a minute. If you prefer to make it without oil then just skip the oil. Pour the stock, ginger & garlic and the veggies. Simmer until they are slightly tender.

12. Then add mushrooms and saute well until a nice aroma comes out. You can also skip mushrooms here and just add some carrots, beans, sweet corn and peas.

14. Simmer and boil until the mushrooms are done to your liking. Then add the spring onion greens. Add some salt if you prefer. Some restaurants serve it with soya sauce.

Serve clear soup hot with some fried noodles or fried rice. You can also simply add some boiled noodles to the soup and have.

Pasta Primavera

Healthy Lentil Chili

This hearty vegetarian chili is both nutritious and satisfying, thanks to the protein-packed navy beans and brown lentils. We added a generous dose of dried spices and other pantry staples to boost the flavor and make this dish accessible for any night of the week.

Veggie Lover's Club Sandwich

Squash and Spinach Lasagna

Lentil Soup

Made with hearty lentils and lots of vegetables, Alton's soup is comforting and satisfying.

Spaghetti and No-Meat Balls

Stuffed Honeynut Squash

Honeynuts look like baby butternut squash but are sweeter and with a thinner skin -- making them perfect for stuffing. This recipe makes a hearty vegetarian main course or flavor-packed side to a roast or steak.

Spaghetti Squash with Fresh Tomatoes and Ricotta

This quick, flavorful and healthy side is done from fridge to table in under 30 minutes. We trim off the top and bottom of the squash, poke it all over and cook it in the microwave in a fraction of the time it would take to roast it. If you wanted to make this a complete meal, juicy turkey meatballs would be a delightful accompaniment to this pasta alternative.

Roasted Zucchini Flatbread

Tofu Parmesan Subs

Tofu is an excellent substitute for chicken or eggplant in the classic Parmesan sub. The sandwiches still have plenty of flavor, thanks to garlic, basil, Italian seasoning and some part-skim mozzarella.

Sicilian-Style Cauliflower with Whole-Wheat Pasta

Skillet Eggs with Squash

Chile Cheese Casserole

Weeknight Vegetarian Chili

Zucchini Fettuccine with Tomato Sauce

Mushroom-Hummus Soup

Vegetarian Spinach-Walnut Pate

The words "vegetarian," "pate" and "caviar" don't necessarily go together, but this creamy, flavor-packed appetizer spreads like pate, and the tart bursts of pomegranate seeds are a little like caviar. This vegetarian (in fact, vegan) dish is inspired by the country of Georgia's dish pkhali, a spinach spread that can also be made with beets or mushrooms.

Healthified Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Slow-Cooker Mushroom Barley Risotto

Tofu-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Healthy Dried Mushroom and Barley Soup

If you're looking for a hearty and healthful meal, consider this dried mushroom and barley soup. The barley adds nuttiness, a sprinkle of flour lends viscosity to the broth and the dried mushrooms provide meatiness and umami. If you have fresh mushrooms on hand, you can add them, too. The result is a deliciously nourishing, vegetarian dish that everyone will love.

Pasta with Broccoli-Walnut Pesto

Tofu Cuban Sandwiches

Vegetarian Chili with Summer Vegetables

You don&rsquot need meat for a delicious and filling chili. Fresh eggplant and firm tofu ensure a crave-worthy texture, while fire-roasted corn and tomatoes provide the classic flavors of your favorite cozy dish.

Meatless Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy

Lightened-Up Penne a la Vodka

Spicy Vegan Sloppy Joes

Tofu-Potato Scramble

Spiced Apple Yogurt Sorghum Bowl

This delicious combination of sorghum, Greek yogurt and cinnamon-ginger sauteed apple is a nourishing and comforting breakfast for a cold winter's morning.

Slow-Cooker Vegetable Lasagna

Busy families, this recipe is for you. I crave the comfort of homemade lasagna in the winter, but I dislike the lengthy assembly time that often accompanies the dish. The slow cooker makes the entire process really simple: no boiling noodles, no precooking the vegetables and no need to worry about making neat layers.

Veggie Burgers with Pomegranate Ketchup

Packed with meaty mushrooms, filling brown rice and hearty walnuts, these burgers are guaranteed to beat anything you grab from the freezer aisle. Serve the veggie burgers with sweet pomegranate ketchup for a flavor profile that you&rsquoll crave again and again.

Cheese-and-Chile-Stuffed Mushrooms

Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe Pesto

Anne's fresh take on pesto uses broccoli rabe and pistachios in place of the traditional basil-and-pine-nut combination.

Seven-Vegetable Couscous

Vegetarian Ribollita

Broccoli Balls with Harissa-Yogurt Sauce

These falafel-inspired broccoli balls are perfectly crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside and loaded with vibrant fresh herbs and spices. Paired with a tangy and spicy harissa-yogurt sauce, they can be perfect guilt-free hors d'oeuvres for your next party, a fiber-packed vegetable side dish or a crunchy addition to a salad. Since harissa pastes can vary widely in spiciness, feel free to adjust to your liking. They freeze really well, so make a double batch and freeze some for another night.

Healthy Vegetable and Couscous Stuffed Peppers

This dish looks particularly vibrant when you use a combination of sweet yellow, red and orange bell peppers. Pick the largest ones you can find, with the flattest, most stable bottoms so they remain standing once they're stuffed and baked in the tomato sauce. These peppers are delicious hot out of the oven or served Mediterranean-style at room temperature.
