Clean Eating "Build It Yourself" Vegetable Soup

This formula is a long time in the making.

I know, I know. It’s vegetable soup. How complicated could it be?

You see there are a few recipes that have always stumped me. I pour in tons of herbs and spices and add lots of nutritious, delicious ingredients, and I end up with a complete dud that has “garbage disposal” written all over it (Thank goodness for a husband who is willing to eat most of my mistakes!).

But it finally dawned on me that the real problem was with my ratios. Spice to liquid to additions ratios. So I started from scratch and ended up with some pretty darn good soup! And the best part is, this is a formula instead of a recipe. So you can use whatever veggies you have in the fridge and still come out with a yummy, veggie soup!

Are there any recipes that just completely baffle you? Recipes you just cannot get right no matter how often you try?

Clean Eating “Build It Yourself” Vegetable Soup 

Any veggies you can put together, chopped small
Veggie broth and/or chicken broth, no sugar added, low sodium
No sodium vegetable bouillon (I use the Rapunzel brand – great stuff!)
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Cooked beans (optional)


For every cup of chopped veggies, use approximately 2 cups broth.

For every 2 cups broth, use 1 bouillon cube.

For every 2 cups broth, stir in 2 tsp. onion powder and garlic powder.

Bring everything to a boil and cook until the veggies are fully cooked.

Allow to cool and salt to taste.

Eat and Enjoy!

Note: If you are using onions and/or fresh garlic, saute them first in the soup pot using 1 tbsp. olive oil. Then add everything else in.

For my soup I used:

  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Green bell peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
