Tons of Veggies Soup!

Our "Tons of" Veggies Soup - this was what I put in the pot last night for today - it is really just pretty to look out and out of this world to eat if you're a veggie lover and love variety 

4 tablespoons olive oil or butter
1-2 yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
16 plus cups water
2 cans organic veggie broth
1 (15 ounce) can Organic diced tomatoes
3 Chopped whole tomatoes
6 red potatoes, diced
1 can organic cannellini beans - do not drain
1 can organic kidney beans - do not drain
2 cups of corn - fresh or frozen organic
3 whole diced organic carrots
4 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 Bay leaves
1/2 cup parsley
salt and pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot; cook the onion, carrots and garlic until soft. Stir in the kale and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the all other ingredients. Simmer soup on medium heat for 30-45 minutes minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
