Garden Vegetable Soup


This Garden Vegetable Soup is includes cabbage, green beans, tomatoes, and more garden veggies. I puree the soup with an immersion blender, but you can leave the vegetables whole if you prefer. This recipe makes a lot of soup, which is great because the soup freezes well. Delicious, healthy and kosher!

  2. Add cabbage, zucchini, green beans, and tomatoes.
  3. Add enough boiling water to cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil.
