Mom’s Vegetable Soup – with pictures!

Here is my mom’s recipe for Vegetable Soup. She made it last week and when I was over, she made me a bowl and WOW! It was so good! I thought I would share it with you!

Mom’s Vegetable Soup


  • 32 oz. vegetable broth
  • 1 package of Knorr French Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 lb of carrots
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1 onion
  • 1 zucchini squash
  • 1 yellow summer squash
  • 16 oz. package of frozen white sweet corn
  • 1 large can diced mexican style (with pepper and onions) tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • salt to taste ( I used about 1/2 a teaspoon)
  • 3 cups water


1. Chop celery, carrots, yellow squash, zucchini, and onion. Try to make them all close to the same size, except for the onion – smaller is better!

2. Dump all of the ingredients into the biggest soup pot you have and stir it up.  Here are the brands I used.

3. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 2-3 hours. Taste the soup before you serve it and make sure there is enough salt and pepper. I added a little more at the end. How easy is that!? It makes a huge pot so you can eat it all week. It is really low in calories and fat free! 🙂 Enjoy!
