Vegetable Soup

I’ve been thinking about it for a few weeks, but tonight I dusted off my recipe for vegetable soup.  I think I got the basic recipe off of, but I tweeked it to fit my peculiar likes and dislikes.  For instance, I don’t like onions but I like the flavor they lend, so I use onion powder instead.  I added a little sugar to make it taste a little more similar to Campbell’s Vegetarian Vegetable.  I also throw in some macaroni to make it a little more hardy.

I lived off of this stuff when I was pregnant with my last child.  (I always crave tomato stuff when I’m pregnant, so the V-8 juice in the recipe hit the spot.)  And the tad of black pepper adds a little kick without giving me indigestion.  It’s also a very quick and easy recipe for the cooking-impaired like me.  I usually cook up a big pot, refrigerate it, and heat it up a bowl at a time through the week.

So, may I present my recipe for Vegetable Soup.

1 large potato, peeled and diced

1 ½ c. water

½ c. frozen carrots

½ Tbsp onion powder

¼ tsp pepper

1 tsp salt
