Rainy Day Soup

It was a rainy day here in NC today which means, Rainy Day Soup! That is what I call the soup that I make on cold, rainy days. On days like today, I don't want to cook anything fancy, I just want to curl up on the couch and watch a movie.

There usually is no recipe, which is what I love about it. I just throw in whatever extra veggies we have in the fridge, and let it cook in the crock pot for a few hours. Today's Rainy Day Soup was extra good though so I wanted to document it and share with yall.

Rainy Day Soup
What You (always) Need:
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 28 oz can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced 
What I Added Today:
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 red potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup dry navy beans
  • 1 tbsp herb's province (that's what was on the label, it came with a bunch of spices my mom gave Chris for Christmas last year) 
  • 1 cup frozen corn
The Process:
  1. Peel potatoes and carrots, and chop/dice all fresh vegetables.
  2. Add everything to the crock pot. Set on low and cook for 6 hours.
