Winter Vegetable Soup

winter vegetable soup
I’ve been in a soup mood lately. Besides loving a warm bowl of soupy goodness on a cold day, I love anything that involves only dirtying one pot.

Did I mention leftovers? Having premade lunches or a light dinner is another plus in my book. Yep, soup is the lazy cook’s lifeboat.

My sis-in-law passed this recipe along to me, and I’m glad she did! This soup is packed full of veggie goodness, and is so satisfying. I have to admit, when I saw brussell sprouts in the ingredient list, I was slightly worried.

My last encounter with said vegetable was as a child, and I distinctly remember the experience was not impressive.

I don’t know if my taste buds have matured, or I just had a bad batch of brussell sprouts, but this time around I really enjoyed them.

Swirl a little sour cream into your bowl right before eating, it really adds to the flavor. Don’t forget the crusty bread!

I really like this soup! It looks super healthy without being too watery like a lot of vegetable soups! Yum!

I'm not a big broth soup person so the swirl of sour cream to make this creamy is perfect for me. I love all the veggies in here (yeah, even the Brussels sprouts), and especially the leeks. Cooking with leeks in winter is so, so good. Your sister-in-law is wonderful. Thank her for giving you the recipe for us; and thanks for sharing it!

I feel just like you do about soup. It's not only that January is Soup Month...I love it all the time. Had to smile about that "soup sock" that appears in your recipe! That sounds like an ingredient from the children's story "Stone Soup!" Love your blog! :)

I don't know if there is anything better than soup on a cold day. Each time I'm here, I feel admiration...and my stomach rumbles. Thank you so much for sharing tonight. This looks delicious (as always!)

Beautiful pictures! My husband and I have vowed to get more veggies this year, and this soup looks like a great way to start! Thanks.

I am also a sucker for a good one pot recipe! The soup looks very yummy, I love the vegetable overload ... I will have to try a batch this week!

Darcy said...

I made this soup last week - it was, like you said, better than I expected. What a great way to get veggies in that I normally wouldn't eat! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Did anyone figure out any nutritional information for this soup? I'm trying to record what I eat and thought I'd see if anyone did it already before I crank out the numbers myself. Thanks!
