My mom makes a beef veggie stew that is similar to this, but I wanted something healthy, low sodium, and full of veggies! It is a great soup to eat on a cold winter night. I serve it by itself, but it would also be great with a side of French bread to dip in the broth!

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion, yellow bell pepper, and garlic in the hot oil until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add potatoes, carrots, zucchini, and enough water to cover mixture by 2 inches. Stir salsa into the mixture and add Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, bay leaves, chili powder, and paprika.

  • Cook soup over medium-low, maintaining a slight boil, until potatoes soften, about 40 minutes. Add broccoli and peas; cook until broccoli is tender, about 20 more minutes. Remove bay leaves.

Cook's Notes:

You can easily substitute any veggies to go with this! I just use whatever I have in the fridge at the moment. If there is something you don't like, keep it out, or if there is something you love, add more!
