Earthy vegetarian soup recipe

It’s officially soup season - warm, flavory chunky or smooth soups to sip at lunch and dinner. This earthy vegetarian soup was created with few ingredients I had in the house, but sure it is delicious and low caloric as well.

Ingredients for earthy vegetarian soup

  • 1 cart of vegetable broth

  • 1/2 onion diced

  • 1 tablespoon of garlic

  • 1 teaspoon of ginger

  • 2 tablespoon of pesto made with basil, olive oil, salt and pepper

  • 4-5 small yellow potatoes peeled and cut in wedges

  • 1/3 of a purple cabbage sliced thin

  • olive oil, salt and pepper

  • one can red beans organic


I took the crock pot out and added some olive oil on the bottom. proceed to add all ingredients starting with the onions, cabbage, and finishing with the broth. Cook for 4 hours on low. I cooked it at night, then in the morning I hit it up again for 15 minutes, while cooking some plain basmati rice.

I placed the rice in a bowl and pour the soup around it. This is such an easy earthy vegetarian recipe. You could add chicken to make it a bit more substantial or even pasta for a version of pasta and fagioli. The aroma of the pesto gives it a very pleasant flavor and kills a bit the strong cabbage smell.
