I have been working on a vegetable soup recipe that will please my family. Everyone in my family has some dislikes and it is hard to make a vegetable soup that will be eaten by everyone. This is my latest vegetable soup attempt. This is a low sodium soup. We find with the fresh lemon juice the salt is not missed.
2 medium skinless chicken breasts diced.
1 larger yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 green bell pepper diced
4 stalks of celery cut in bite size pieces
4 large carrots diced
2 cans Italian diced tomatoes
1 large bottle of vegetable juice low sodium( V8) can substitute tomato juice
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp seven spices (Mediterranean seasoning ) can substitute cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
juice of one medium lemon
In a large soup pot brown onions and garlic, add chicken pieces and begin to brown. Add diced pepper and celery stir and cook 15 minutes. Add carrots, parsley and diced tomatoes. Add vegetable juice and seasonings. Simmer until carrots are soft. Squeeze in lemon juice to taste.
Serve with fresh baked rolls or crackers.
