Soup Recipe, September 8, 2020

Our World TuesdayAll Seasons, and My Corner of the World

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, September 5, 2020

Here in the southeastern United States, after a hot Summer, we are beginning to get cooler weather, especially in the mornings. And naturally, cooler weather means it is time to start thinking about soups! 

Lea's Vegetable Soup

Potatoes, as many or as few as you want, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces

One large Carrot or several smaller ones, cut into bite-sized pieces

One Sweet Yellow Onion, peeled and sliced

One clove of Garlic, peeled and cut into tiny pieces

Olive oil for sautéing the onion and garlic

One can of Beans, undrained (I like the dark red kidney beans to give more color to the soup)

One can of Fire-roasted Whole Kernel Corn, undrained (Del Monte)

One Chicken Bouillon Cube with Herbs and Spices (Wyler's)

One packet or cube of Ham Flavoring (Goya is the brand I like, but whatever you have will be good)


Put cut up potatoes and carrots in a soup pot. Add enough water to cover. Add cans of beans and corn with their liquid, and turn heat to medium-high. While waiting for the soup to boil, sauté the onion in olive oil. When the soup is boiling, add the garlic to the onion and sauté for one minute more. Add onions and garlic, and any oil in the skillet, to the soup. Add the chicken bouillon cube and ham flavoring. Stir well, turn heat down to a low boil, and cook until potatoes and carrots are tender.

I like the soup just the way it is, but my husband adds fresh-ground black pepper. Enjoy!

Have a blessed day!

  6. This sounds a lovely, healthy and satisfying soup, Lea! Still have all the doors to the outside open all day, so it will be a while before my boday start craving for soup. But who knows we will be there at the end of September Many thanks for sharing your recipe with All Seasons. Mmm, can't wait to try this out:) Have a great week, Jesh

  9. it's not quite cool enough here in Florida yet, but I am looking forward to making a pot of soup. I make something similar to this one but instead of corn I add baby spinach or baby kale at the end and let it wilt. Yum! Thanks for the recipe!
