This vegetable soup recipe is perfect for a cold fall or winter day! Packed full of nutrition and yummy!
In this recipe I use a little nutritional yeast that adds a lot of flavor! Nutritional yeast is not the same yeast used in breads.
Did you know that nutritional yeast has 18 amino acids? And it contains iron, vitamin B, potassium, biotin, zinc (just to name a few)! And it has a slight nutty, cheesy flavor. I will admit when I first tried nutritional yeast I was not to sure about it but now I love it! It is so good for you so hang in there and wait for your taste buds to adjust. You will not regret it!
This is the nutritional yeast I use. Pure Natural Non-fortified Nutritional Yeast Flakes (8 oz.) Whole Food Based Protein Powder, Vitamin B Complex, Beta-glucans and all 18 Amino Acids
1 med onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 red potatoes, cubed
2 carrots, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 sm zucchini, chopped
1 cup corn
32 oz. vegetable broth
1 Tblsp Italian seasoning
1/8 cup nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
In large pot add 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Add onion and garlic. Cook on medium heat until tender. Add remaining ingredients, except nutritional yeast. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 30-45 minutes. You can also cook in your crock pot. Low heat for 3-4 hours or high 7-8 hours. Add nutritional yeast and enjoy with some warm bread.
