Hey Everybody!!! So you know what today is??? Tasty Tuesday Tip!!! I am a fan of a good soup. So today’s soup is “Butter Bean Vegetable Soup”. I came also a recipe and of course I always find ways to make it my own. Having a nice soup on a cold night is always a good meal option. If you are a busy mom and you are still trying to find meals and ways to get food on the table..go for a soup!!!!! Remember you can put in the crock pot as well!! This soup is full of vegetables so it is a healthy option. Also accompanied by “butter beans” which will provide you fiber as well as protein.
You do not have to rely on canned soups this season. Even with a busy schedule, plan a head and make something happen in the kitchen. When I am in the kitchen cooking, it at times is a playground. Meaning my kids tend to for some reason follow me at times. So I literally have to kick them out of kitchen if I can. I am at the stove and trucks and balls are being pushed across the floor or my 1 year is literally sucking his thumb while holding my hand up to his face. So imagine what it takes to get a meal on the table. But guess what? I get it done!! As I always say, “Small Steps Equals BIG Change”.
Here is what you need:
- 2 cans butter beans (drained)
- 3 stalks celery (chopped)
- 3 stalks carrots (chopped)
- 1/4 cup diced red pepper
- 1 can of stewed tomatoes (15 1/2 oz) Note**I used diced tomatoes w/green chilies)
- 16 oz chicken broth
- 1//4 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 dried basil
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp of oil
I used my Pioneer Woman Dutch Oven I absolutely love it to make soups!! So I placed all of my veggies into my pot.
Oil was already added then just add veggies. Saute until tender.
Once veggies are getting tender..it should look something like this. Also using The Pioneer Woman Spoonulas
Next I added the broth, beans, tomatoes(use stewed tomatoes if you don’t want the spice-remember I used tomatoes w/green chilies) and all the seasonings!! Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes uncovered until soup is heated.
And that’s it!! I nice, yummy bowl of soup!!
