main ingredients for all the veggies in the house soup
1/4 head of white cabbage thinly chopped
1/2 bell pepper
small sweet potato
1 onion finely diced
1 carrot chopped
1 small zuchini
2 celery stalks diced up
1 medium to large potato
couple slices of swede cubed
1 can of roman beans
1 can of chopped tomatoes
some chopped garlic
assorted seasoning- onion powder, garlic powder (1 teaspoon of each),chili powder (1/4 teaspoon), oregano, basil ( 1 tablespoon of each), veg buillon (2 tablespoons.) or 1 stock cube.
good squirt of tomato puree

i toss all the veg into a 4qrt pot, i think it's a 4 qrt pot. it's the biggest one i have. i saute everything in a little olive oil.

when things start softening up i add the seasoning. i let it cook a few minutes more. add the chopped tomato and beans. add enough water to cover the veg, usually a can and a half.

bring everything to a boil. cover and turn down to low. cook 1hr. uncover and let simmer about 1/2hr. veg should be tender when done. makes about 5 servings. great with shredded cheddar cheese on top and garlic bread.
