Easy Vegetable Soup
Serves: 2-3
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup rice or quinoa
  • 1 medium/large potato, peeled & chopped
  • 1 large carrot, peeled & chopped
  • ½ cup zucchini, cut into slices or chunks
  • ½ cup butternut squash or another summer squash, cut into chunks
  • ¼ cup chopped onion or ½ tsp onion powder
  • rosemary - 1 tsp dried or 1 TB fresh
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • parsley - 1 tsp dried or 1 TB fresh, chopped
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper (sprinkle desired amount)
  • Other options: green beans, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, chopped tomato, barley, peas, corn
  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil.
  2. Add the rice/quinoa and cover, cook on low.
  3. Start chopping the veggies/onion/potato and add them in, along with all the herbs & seasonings.
  4. Then turn up the heat to medium after you add everything, keep it covered and stir occasionally. You will basically cook until the rice/quinoa is done and the carrots are tender. It's about 25 minutes of cooking time, after bringing it to a boil.
