What’s For Dinner? Winter Vegetable Soup

Thank goodness for comfort food!


On a cold winter’s night we feel the need for warm, comfort food.  And we know cold winter nights here.  This past week our thermometer has been reading between -20 and -28 degrees C at night.  That is COLD.  Freezing your nostril hairs cold.  But secretly, I love this weather.
I’m a Canadian through and through!


So here’s a vegetable soup recipe from one of our dinners this week.  It’s so great for these winter nights!
It went over really well – our true test is whether the baby will eat it.  And eat it he did.


Save Recipe


  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 - 28 oz can whole tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 can tomato sauce (plain, no spices)
  • 2 cups beef or vegetable broth
  • 1 - 2 cups cooked noodles (I used egg noodles)


  1. In a soup pot, cook cabbage, carrots, celery, onions and garlic in butter, until soft.
  2. Add oregano, bay leaves, salt, pepper, tomatoes, tomato sauce and broth.
  3. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
  4. In the mean time, cook your noodles in a separate pot. This is so they don't soak up all of your liquid in the soup.
  5. Just before you are ready to eat, add the cooked noodles.
  6. Serve immediately.



Mmmm!  Soul warming soup.


Great with crusty bread!
