Spicy Veggie Soup

Y’all. Seriously. This is so easy to make. Throw in this and that and you have a healthy delicious dinner! It is super windy and cold out, so I wanted to make some hot soup to warm me up. I have a whole pot to myself. Well, I made extra for my friend who is going veggie this month. I added some leftover grilled chicken and a dollop of sour cream in my bowl at the end to add some protein and richness. You could add beans, different veggies, heavy cream, cheese, croutons, tortilla chips, ground beef, tofu, etc. Soup has no limits!

Spicy Veggie Soup

Ingredients

1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped and minced
1 sweet pepper chopped- I had a combo of yellow, orange, red, and green leftover in the fridge
1 jalapeno, chopped I seeded mine and took out the membrane, but if you want it super spicy, leave them. Or if you wanted less spicy, you could add a chopped poblano pepper
1 container of mushrooms
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 can of tomato sauce
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of canned corn, with liquid (or frozen)
1 can of green beans, with liquid (or frozen)
fresh or dried herbs- I used oregano, marjoram, and thyme, plus a bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
red pepper flakes to taste
extra hot sauce if wanted

Directions

In a dutch oven, cook down all your veggies in a few tablespoons of veggie oil and add salt and pepper- about 10 minutes. Add your tomato paste. Stir in and cook about 5 more minutes. Add in your canned ingredients. If your veggies are frozen, add them in, but add a bit of water if needed. Stir and add in red pepper flakes and/or hot sauce. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
