Vegetable Soup

I must admit, I've never really been a fan of vegetable soup. The reason for this is that I've only ever tried the nasty canned stuff. But THIS vegetable soup is leagues above any canned soup out there. So delicious! Even my picky 2 year old enjoyed it.

Recipe slightly adapted from Cooking Classy


2 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (1 medium)
2 cups peeled and diced carrots (about 4)
3 cups diced potatoes (about 3 medium)
4 garlic cloves pressed
4 cups vegetable broth
1 can diced tomatoes
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups chopped frozen or fresh green beans
1 cup frozen or fresh corn
1 cup frozen or fresh peas

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and potatoes and saute 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and salute 30 seconds more. Pour in the broth and diced tomatoes and add the bay leaves, thyme, parsley, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil then add green beans and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender. Add corn and peas and cook 5 minutes longer.
