Yummy Veggie Soup

I'm not a big recipe poster, since my meals are usually super boring, but I did recently find a yummy recipe though that I thought was worth sharing! 

I had been craving soup for forever, but could never find a recipe that was simple enough for me! Until I came across this Nia Shanks post. When I saw the word "laziest" I knew it was the recipe for me!

I pretty much stuck to the exact recipe. I used a pack of 99% lean turkey and a pack of 93%. I used just one can of fire roasted tomatoes and chicken broth instead of beef broth.

Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds beef or turkey, browned and drained
  • 1 jumbo bag (about 2 pounds) of frozen mixed veggies 
  • 2-4 diced potatoes (optional)
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 15oz cans of Italian or fire roasted tomatoes (may also use fresh)
  • 6oz can tomato paste
  • 1 quart chicken or beef broth (may want to use a bit more, depending on how much broth you like)
Directions:
  1. Put all the ingredients in the slow cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
  3. Spoon that meaty-veggie goodness in a bowl and eat. If you want more spice top it with hot sauce or something else with a kick.
It came out really good, and my husband loved it, too! The best thing is that it's SOOO easy and you'll have leftovers for days!


Let me know if you try it!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I WILL be trying this within the next couple of days. I don't have any fire-roasted tomatoes on hand, but will get some as I want that extra 'zip' they provide. I have been patiently waiting on this recipe -mostly because the pics looked amazing and I have some turkey in the fridge just calling for this kind of recipe. Yes, this is super appealing because I can toss it in the cooker, leave it alone and yet still have soup for days!! Nothing wrong about that win-win!!

    I'm not a big fan of cooking, in general, but I do it (now) because I am committed to eating healthier than I ever have (yes, it's paid off, but ugh). So things like this are definitely in my rotation! Now, baking on the other hand......but that could just be because I like to sample my way through the process, and then try the finished product - which is, of course, a problem.......

    Thanks again!!!!!!! ~Jen

  2. Soup Success!!! Excellent stuff. I changed up just a couple of things for something new. I used the fire roasted, but also added a can of petite diced (Red Gold brand), I used beef broth ('cuz I normally use chicken in everything else), I did not add any salt (and used the low sodium version of beef broth) and added a bit of cumin to taste - just because I felt like it. I also used 1 lb ground turkey and some pre-cooked turkey tenderloins. My potato choice was red potatoes added half way thru (pre-bagged from the store) - I think it was Crystal Farms Simply Potatoes.

    All in all....it turned out great. Best of all, we have meals for a few more days for something super quick, easy and healthy!!!

    Thanks so much for posting this one!!
