“I made this up to keep in the freezer at all times whilst on my own "biggest loser" journey to get to my goal weight. It's a soup with a lot of liquid and tons of vegies and can be altered to your tastes and to what you have on hand. I like it this way, that's why I'm posting it so I remember my favorite batch! Try it and let me know your thoughts. Please note I am guessing on the yield as I don't know the exact size of my Aunt's big soup pot!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a food processor (or knife) chop all vegetables into pieces, I tend to shred so that everything is in small pieces but it's a personal thing.
  2. Put everything in a very large stock pot except for salt, borlotti beans and spinach.
  3. Cover with water and bring to a simmer.
  4. Cook till just tender, about 30-40mins for me.
  5. Taste & season to your liking.
  6. Add borlotti beans and spinach, and heat through until spinach wilts and beans are warm.
  7. Serve piping hot, and cool the remainder for freezer storage so soup is on hand at any time of the day or night.
