Soup of the Month - Garden Vegetable

This is the best time of year for vegetables, but with the hot temperatures, who wants to turn on the stove!
This recipe is great as it takes less than an hour.


Ingredients
2/3 cup sliced carrot
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups fat-free broth ( beef, chicken or vegetable)
1 1/2 cups diced green cabbage
1/2 cup green beans
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 large tomatoes, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/3 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced zucchini


In large saucepan that has be sprayed with pam, saute the carrot, onion, garlic and celery about 5 minutes.
Add broth and cabbage, beans tomato paste*, tomato, basil, oregano and salt.

* I did not have tomato paste so I added katchup


Bring to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer 20 minutes, or until beans are tender.

Stir in zucchini and heat for 5 minutes more.

Serve hot. 
I love this soup, it's tasty, low calorie and does not heat up the kitchen.
I had mine with corn bread and grated cheese! It was wonderful! 

PS - Don't limit yourself to the listed veggies, you can add whatever you like.
