I first made this soup 10 years ago when I had a 2 year old and baby! A few things have changed, okay many things have changed, like twice as many kids and we now live in Maryland for starters! We've been gardening since we moved here and some of my ingredients are now based on what we grow and how we freeze/can it.
The original recipe is HERE.
- 3-4 gloves finely sliced
- 1 cup of celery (can be frozen or fresh)
- 1 carrot finely chopped
- Small drizzle of oil
- Beef Broth - 1 quart
- Tomatoes - 1 quart bag frozen (which is simply tomatoes with skin removed in hot bath then frozen), this would equal a 28oz can if bought in store (use fire roasted for extra kick)
- Zucchini sliced - 1 quart bag frozen (alternative would be one fresh zucchini, at least 1lb)
- 1 teaspoon basil
