This is a go-to recipe for my family. It takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare, sometimes even 5 minutes if I’m keeping it extra simple. It’s a simple “set it and forget it” recipe and who doesn’t love that. That saying always brings me back to the Ronco Rotisserie Grill. Do you guys remember those infomercials?!! I sure do! There’s something so appealing about “setting and forgetting.” I’m pretty good at the forgetting part, but that’s also called “mommy brain.”
Many of my readers are parents and/or working professionals and are looking for quick, easy ways to make meals healthy. Soups are lifesavers in this case. You can load them up with vegetables and grains without much effort. No fancy stuff, no fluff…just simplicity. And with a little puree action, even the pickiest eater will say “yuuummmm.” Raise you hand if you do the puree trick too? It works like a charm, almost every time. ☺️
So what makes this soup so easy? The key is organic frozen vegetables! This drastically reduces time cutting up veggies and the soup tastes just as good…trust me on this one. There are different types of mixes out there, but the one I usually buy has carrots, green beans, cauliflower, celery, and green beans. Then, I take this opportunity to clean out my fridge and/or freezer with other fresh and frozen vegetables that need to be used up. Throw in a can of beans, a can of organic low sodium canned tomatoes, a heaping cup of any grain of your choice, vegetable broth, spices and set it…and forget it for about 3 hours.
Do what you need to do….clean the house, work, laundry, play with the kids, lunch with friends, visit your family, ect….and when you come home dinner is ready. Quickly pair it with a salad and some sprouted grain bread and your belly is full with a nutritious, low calorie meal. And you will have left overs so you can now forget about planning lunch for the next day.
I hope you enjoy!
