“Wanting something a bit spicy to accompany penne afredo for a summer dinner, I came up with this flavor packed soup. I made it entirely with assorted vegetables from my freezer and 2 cans of diced tomatoes I had on hand, but fresh veggies from the garden would be even more delicious!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In stockpot at medium high heat, combine all vegetables and drizzle with oil.
  2. As vegetables being to warm, sprinkle with seasonings and stir to combine.
  3. Bring to simmer, adding as much water as seems appropriate to keep vegetables from sticking (mixture should NOT be soup-y).
  4. Let simmer for ~10 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and let mixture cool somewhat.
  6. Process in small batches in food processor or blender to desired consistency-- I left mine a bit chunky since I liked seeing all the colors.
  7. Let cool to room temperature to serve, or chill for 90+minutes. Stir before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. Note: Cooking time includes the chilling time; actual cooking time is under 30 minutes.
