I'm not a big soup eater, neither are my older kiddos, but my hubby and youngest son love soup- of course that was before we went VEGAN- usually they would eat Clam Chowder or Broccoli and Cheese soups, etc...! My husband has been dealing with some health issues and wanted me to make up a good healthy vegan soup with tons of nutrient dense foods, that would also taste good.
So, this is one I made up and EVERYONE, even us non-soup eaters liked it. Everyone loved it so much, that I ended up having to make it twice in one week :-)
VERY Healthy Vegan Soup
1 Large Spoonful of Better than Bouillon Veggie Base 3 Carrots peeled and chopped 5 -6 Medium Potatoes peeled and chopped 2 Celery stalks (ends removed) chopped 1 Bunch of Green onion (ends removed) chopped 1 Zucchinni chopped 1 Yellow squash chopped 1/2-3/4 a bag of frozen white corn 5 to 6 Kale leaves chopped (stems removed) 4 Cloves of garlic- chopped, mashed, or pressed 1 cup Uncooked pearled barley 1 can petite diced tomatoes juice included 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
*** I use the following seasonings to taste (totally up to your preference) for me its about 3 good shakes from the container

Fill a soup pot halfway with filtered water. Add all ingredients except corn and kale. For chopped veggies I tried to make the pieces large and chunky- not finely chopped. Bring soup to a boil then turn down to medium heat. Cook for 40 minutes then add the Kale and Corn. Cook another 15 to 30 minutes. Serve with Alicia's Vegan Cornbread :-) AWESOME!!!
