Homemade Vegetable Soup

Today, I tried my hand at making my own vegetable soup, and it turned out pretty darn well. It was delicious and so good for you since the only ingredients are vegetables (I used carrots, zucchini, squash, green beans, peas, corn and potatoes), tomato paste and water.

It also made a TON of leftovers, which will be great for lunches!

Here’s the recipe:
6 C water
3 small cans tomato sauce (I used Muir Glen)
1 bag sliced carrots (in the produce section — I didn’t use quite the whole bag, and when I make this again I’d probably only use half the bag)
1 can corn
1 can green beans
1 can peas
1 can potatoes (I didn’t feel like peeling and slicing, so I went ahead and bought the potatoes on the canned vegetable aisle)
1 zucchini
1 squash
Seasoning to taste (I used Basil, Thyme and Oregano)

Combine everything in a crock pot and cook on low for six hours. The carrots were still a bit crunchy, so next time I will probably put those in an hour ahead of time, then add everything else and cook for six hours.

    This looks good but I’m confused about whether you used tomato paste as you said above or tomato sauce as the recipe says.
