Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium yellow onion or 3 small shallots, finely diced
  • 1 cup celery finely diced*
  • 1 cup carrots finely diced
  • 12 small potatoes, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp fennel seed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • (alternative) 2 tsp italian seasoning
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 15 oz diced tomatoes (can use canned or fresh)
  • 5 cups veggie broth
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 15 oz cooked white beans (I used navy beans)
  • 2 cups cooked gluten free pasta, al dente
  • 3 cups greens like chard, baby kale, spinach, roughly chopped

other suggestions

  • diced summer squash
  • fresh corn
  • fresh parsley
  • nutritional yeast
  • vegan parmesan

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, sauté onion, carrots, celery and potato with a splash of oil or veggie broth for 10-12 minutes, until fragrant. Add garlic, basil, oregano, thyme and fennel seed and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
  2. Next, add tomato paste and diced tomatoes, and cook for another few minutes. Then add veggie broth and water and bring to a boil. Lower heat and bring to a simmer, then let cook, partially covered for about 25 minutes. *If using Instant Pot, pressure cook on high for 6 minutes and release. At this point, season generously with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Finally, add cooked beans, cooked pasta (if using) and chopped greens to cook through. Remove bay leaf and enjoy!
  4. Garnish with fresh parsley and vegan parmesan if desired.

Notes

*I recommend dicing veggies into 1/2″ cubes for quicker cooking.
