Pantry Vegetable Soup Recipe

Lately, my family is so in love with this Pantry Vegetable Soup Recipe. As soon as social distancing & stay at home orders began, I took the opportunity to teach my kids how to make a meal. Luckily, my daughter is a huge fan of soup. After grabbing what was on our shelves, we set out to make a quick & easy vegetable soup featuring a good amount of shelf-stable ingredients.

Pantry Vegetable Soup Recipe -You’re a Winner Baby

Well, our first batch of this Pantry Vegetable Soup Recipe was so tasty! Honestly, I thought it may be a fluke. While I do love soup, vegetable soup is never my first choice. For taste testing purposes & to use up more of our shelf ingredients, we made the dish several more times. Each time, we loved it!

One thing I love about this recipe is you use what you have. While I love it with red potatoes, use whatever potatoes you have on hand. I am a huge fan of The Book Club Cookbook’s spices. I used the Sage of Innocence Rubbed Sage in this soup & it is so tasty! If you’re all out of sage, use something else. The beauty of this recipe is the base is so delicious, you can adjust things here & there & still have a tasty dinner.

Make It Tonight

Perhaps my favorite thing about this Pantry Vegetable Soup Recipe is that it is a breeze to make. An added bonus, my daughter now feels comfortable peeling and chopping vegetables. The second round of this soup, she made it on her own. While I don’t always love soup on a warm day, this is a great year-round recipe. I can’t wait to get some fresh green beans & make this again!
