Using a gallon size freezer bag, save and freeze spare cuttings from all your cleaned and scrubbed fresh vegetables: onion skins, zucchini and cucumber ends, potato peels, carrot tips, carrot peels, tomatoes, celery, greens, garlic paper. The possibilities are endless!

When the freezer bag is full:

  1. Pour the frozen cuttings into a large cooking pan. Fill with water (ratio 2 - 3 parts water to vegetables).
  2. Bring to boil and simmer until you get a rich, nice looking broth.
  3. Strain the broth into another pan (the veggies can be composted).

You've now got a healthy vegetarian broth, that was virtually free. For soup, use cooked pasta, cubed or sliced fresh veggies, frozen veggies, cooked lentils, cooked beans, cooked rice. Bring to a boil, simmer till the veggies are done, and spice to taste. Go through your fridge and cupboards and use your leftovers and imagination!

I would like recipes for soups without meat, but with beans: black, red, white, on and on. It can be done in a crockpot or hand blended.
Thanks.

I've posted a link to this recipe before -- it's wonderful! It has no meat, and no added salt. Very flexible and forgiving. I've used canned beans or dried beans (adjusting cooking time). I've used veggies fresh from the garden, and I've added other veggies that I happen to have on hand. I never use the blender on it. I like to offer lime wedges to squeeze over each bowl, and reduced fat cheddar and reduced fat sour cream. I've also had chopped up avocado to sprinkle over the bowls of soup. It's always good!

I make this soup all the time. Inexpensive, filling, and easy to make. It's made with lentils but you could substitute white beans if you prefer.
