vegetable vegetarian soupAs a little kid, I remember many a lunch that consisted of a can of Campbell’s soup and a sandwich. One of my favorites was the Vegetable Vegetarian that had ABCs in it. A bowl of that and a grilled cheese made for a pretty happy me. Seeing that I liked an all-veggie soup as an elementary aged kid, it makes sense that I still have an affinity for vegetarian meals.

In winter I enjoy having vegetarian soups for lunch or dinner. The chill of winter goes to my core, and warm food is one of my best antidotes. (Another is a recently purchased pair of heated slippers. Not practical at the office but a delight to wear at home.)

Anyway, back to the soup. Most of the soups I make fall into one of two categories: made in under 15 minutes or left in a crockpot. This recipe is of the crockpot persuasion. However, if one used all frozen vegetables, this dish would fit into the first category.

This is a lighter soup, so although I served it as a main dish, it does need a hearty accompaniment to fully satisfy an appetite. I served it with cheddar cheese biscuits. (Return for the recipe next week.) It also would be well paired with a grilled cheese sandwich.
