You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘veggie broth’ tag.

This is the soup that I eat at least 3 days per week.  It’s my “go-to” lunch entree when at work.  I just grab a jar from my freezer in the morning, and then heat and eat in the same 1 cup wide-mouth glass jar.

CHOP THESE VEGGIES:  (It goes really fast if you use the slicing blade of a food processor)

1 large onion
5 cloves garlic (mince)
2 carrots
1 medium head cauliflower
20 crimini mushrooms
28 oz crushed organic tomatoes with basil OR 5 medium tomatoes

(I slice tomatoes by hand using a really sharp knife that only gets used for tomatoes.  That way, my “tomato knife” doesn’t get dull.  Who enjoys slicing tomatoes with a dull knife?  Not me!)

COMBINE THESE SEASONINGS:

4 t tarragon
3 t paprika
2 t thyme
3 t veggie broth powder
1 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
dash granulated garlic
2 bay leaves

SET ASIDE:

1 C rinsed lentils (whatever kind you like)
6 C water
1 T dijon mustard

ASSEMBLY:

Use a large soup pot.  On medium heat, melt 1/2 T coconut oil.  Saute the veggies with the seasonings (start with the onion and garlic, then gradually add the other veggies).  Add the lentils, water and mustard.  Simmer for about an hour, or until the lentils are cooked.  Add more water if needed, depending on how thick you like it.  Portion in 1 cup or 1 pint jars and freeze.  Makes about 17 cups.

This chili soup recipe is VERY flexible.  Today I made it with the veggies I noted, but on other occasions I’ve included cabbage, cauliflower and/or kale.  I’ve also had success using a package of soy chorizo for the meaty component (be aware that different brands are more or less spicy).  Of course, you can omit the meatless meats if you need to make it gluten free.  Substitute some mushrooms instead!  Feel free to use what you have or what you like.  According to my palate, this is “medium” spicy.  It has tons o’ flava!

NOTE:  Use a very large soup pot.  My largest pot (8 quart) was full to within 2 inches of the top.

CHOP/SET ASIDE THESE VEGGIES:

1 onion
1 green or red pepper
2 large carrots
2 celery stalks
6 cloves garlic (mince)
4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes
1 pkg (12 oz) frozen corn

COMBINE THESE LIQUIDS:

~5 cups veggie broth or water
28 oz can crushed tomato with basil
14 1/4 oz can diced tomato (no added salt)
15 oz can tomato sauce (no added salt)
2 T tamari

SET ASIDE THESE VEGGIE MEATS:

*6 cups cooked beans (i.e. black, pinto, kidney, red, garbanzo)
1 link (chopped) Field Roast Mexican Chipotle Sausage (these are very spicy on their own)
1 pkg meatless ground (Gardein or Yves)

*Note:  3 cups dry beans yields about 6 cups cooked

COMBINE THESE SEASONINGS:

2 T brown sugar (organic)
1 T chili powder
1 T cumin
1 T basil
1 T nutritional yeast
1/2 T smoked paprika
1/2 T coriander
1/2 T oregano
1 t taco seasoning blend
1/2 t salt
1/4 t chipotle
1/4 t garlic powder
4 t salt free broth powder + 1 cube broth (omit if using liquid broth)

ASSEMBLY:

Saute the veggies (except the frozen corn) and the seasonings in 1/2 T coconut oil for several minutes (medium heat).  Gradually add everything else.  Simmer until the potatoes are done, about an hour.  Portion in pint size jars and freeze.  Makes…a LOT! (about 13 1/2 pints)
