Rustic Vegetable Soup

 Rustic Vegetable Soup

YUM!  I am exited to share this recipe with you.  I really loved cooking and especially loved eating this soup.  It warmed my insides and had a wholesome texture that brought back memories of visiting my Grandma.  The unique flavor of leek, heartiness of cabbage, and healthy carrots I feel make this soup a quick and easy meal that you can make and enjoy for the whole week — or feed a large family or group of friends.  It’s a light soup but it still filled me up.  Rachel said that it needed some potatoes, so next time I think I’ll add those.  Here’s what I did:

Mix it upStir it up


  • Olive Oil
  • 3 long celery stocks diced
  • 3 large carrots chopped
  • 1 large white or yellow onion chopped
  • 1 large leek chopped (white portion)
  • 1 whole green cabbage
  • (Rachel suggest 2 or 3 medium potatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Sea Salt and Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder for a kick
  • 64 oz chicken broth or vegetable broth for vegetarian/vegan
  • Water


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium
  2. Add all the vegetables and heat them up until they begin to get soft (about 5 to 10 minutes)
  3. Add the broth
  4. Cover the rest of the vegetables (as needed) with water
  5. Bring the pot to a slow boil and let it simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Serve the soup in a big bowl with some fresh Italian bread and garnish with some parsley.

I hope you enjoy it!
