Because It Is The Middle Of Winter: A Hearty Vegetable Soup Recipe To Try

Meet your new go-to soup. (Yes, it's that good.)

A big ol’ bowl of hearty vegetable soup is the perfect end to a long January day, is it not? It’s also, helpfully, a great way to get those essential nutrients without having to chow down on plates of vegetables. And perhaps the best news: It’s simple to make — and easily customizable, based on what you like and don’t like. Here, my go-to vegetable soup recipe. (I have a feeling it will soon be yours, too.)



  • 1-2 chopped medium carrots
  • 2-3 chopped celery sticks
  • 2-3 crushed cloves of garlic
  • 1-2 chopped medium leeks
  • 2-3 sliced and diced tomatoes
  • 2-3 peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 1-2 chopped brown onions
  • 1-2 chopped medium zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut or olive oil
  • 3 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Put a bit of cooking oil in a large pot and heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic. Cook until translucent, around two minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the vegetables, except the tomatoes. Cook until brown and soft, around five minutes.
  4. Add the stock, diced tomatoes and water.
  5. Bring the whole mixture to a boil, and let it simmer for a period of 30 – 40 minutes at low heat.
  6. Once the vegetables are cooked and the soup fragrant, add the mixture to the blender — or serve chunky with some warm sourdough bread. (YUM.)

And there you have it: A chunky vegetable soup recipe to soothe you on a cold winter’s day.
