Magic Veggie Soup!

Why is this soup magical? Because it heals the soul, calms the mind and fills your belly! I randomly placed vegetables in a pot, turned on the heat and let it simmer. Feel free to add what ever veggie you have in your fridge – make it different each and every time.

magic veggie soup 2


  • 6 cups organic, low sodium vegetable broth, or water
  • 1 small / medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 large carrots, sliced into chunks
  • 4 stalks of celery, cut in half then chopped
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • half of a head of kale, washed and torn into pieces
  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley + 1/4 cup of fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dried dill
  • 1/3 cup dried couscous (optional)


In a large soup pot add olive oil, onion carrots and a pinch of salt. Cook until the onion is soft. Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Don’t let the garlic burn! Add your liquid and the rest of the vegetables and herbs. Let come to a boil then reduce to medium low, cover and let simmer for a good 30 – 45 minutes.

Taste to check salt, adding a pinch at a time. If you are planning on adding couscous add it now. Let cook for an additional 10 minutes, or until couscous is tender and cooked.
