Vegetable Soup

I know, I know, I should be posting recipes that will help you stick to your New Year’s Resolution of losing that extra 10 lbs, but let’s wait till spring when cold salads sound better than they do when it is 50 degrees and the fireplace is just calling our name to sit by it with a book, blanket and a bowl of hot soup. Now, see doesn’t that sound better already? Besides, we really need this extra little “roll” to help us stay warm. So head to the kitchen and whip up this delicious vegetable soup.

3 quarts chicken broth

2 lbs red potatoes, cut into 2″pieces

1 lb carrots, cut into 1″ pieces

1 large onion, cut into 1″ pieces

1 stalk celery, peeled and chopped

1 (2 lb) bag frozen baby lima beans

1 (1 lb) bag frozen niblet corn

1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes

2 (14.5 oz) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes

3 tables garlic powder

1 1/2 tables salt

1 tables sugar

1 tables Worcestershire sauce

In large stockpot, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, simmer uncovered for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. (I like to put it in a heavy pot and bake it at 300 for 2-3 hours). Also that allows you to leave the house and come home to a great smelling kitchen. Serve with fried garlic toast (find that recipe on the blog)
