Homemade Campbell’s Vegetable Soup

Campbell's Vegetable Soup
I absolutely love campbell’s vegetable soup. My favourite memory is coming in from a cold winter day at my grandparent’s farm and getting to eat a huge bowl of this soup along with the typical grilled cheese sandwich. But I stopped eating canned soups when I realized how easy it is to make soup at home! Of course though, I still missed my favourite Campbell’s vegetable soup. So.. of course, I went on a mission to replicate the flavours at home and I think I pretty much nailed it! If you love campbell’s soup, you will love this recipe. 🙂 

Ingredients:
-1/2 tbsp olive oil
-1/2 a white onion chopped
-3 cloves of garlic
-1/2 a red bell pepper chopped
-1 and 1/2 ribs celery chopped
-1/2 cup baby carrots chopped
-1 large sweet potato chopped (could substitute white potato!)
-1/2 cup peas-frozen/canned or fresh
-2 cups vegetable broth
-2 cups water+ 2 beef bouillons (or 2 cups beef broth)
-7oz. or half a can diced tomatoes
-1 tsp basil
-1 tsp parsley
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper (or to taste)

Directions: Heat a large pot with olive oil over low-medium heat. Once hot, add chopped onions and cook until just softened(about 3-4min). Next add your garlic, red pepper & celery and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Now add your tomatoes, liquids and toss in all the other vegetables along with your bouillon packets and spices. Bring to a low-boil and then turn down to about medium heat and simmer uncovered for around 40-45 minutes or until the carrots and potatoes have softened. Serve hot with a side of grilled cheese or just eat by itself! Feel free to freeze the leftovers for future quick dinners :). Enjoy!
