A gorgeous, slow cooked golden vegetable soup packed with fresh ingredients and then blended until smooth and creamy. Hmmm mmmm. Gold in a bowl, Baby!
Homemade vegetable soup is one of those classic recipes every Mom should know how to make. This is my slow cooker version, but you can make it on the stove top too, just adjust cooking times as it only takes around 30 in a pot.
The texture of the soup is thick and creamy, and kid friendly. Serve with some toasted wholegrain bread for a complete, hearty meal or on its own for a lighter option (A big bowl of this soup is LESS than 100 calories).
Zero Waste Recipe
Dont let your vegetables get sad and wilted in the bottom fridge drawer. This recipe gives you an opportunity to give them new life.
Can you Freeze Vegetable Soup?
YES you can!! In fact, I recommend it! Consider a little gift to your future self. Finding a frozen, ready made soup in the freezer literally makes your day.
How long can you keep it in the Freezer
I have a freezer rule. I dont keep things longer than three months in my freezer I just dont do it. If we havent eaten it in three months, chances are we wont. So I make a point of using of freezer food before it reaches its three month deadline. Use freezer labels to track the day you packed the food in the freezer and if you want to be super organised, download my Printable ONE PAGE Freezer inventory here (its free!!).
