New Recipe: Delish Vegetable Soup!

I've been craving soup for a while now.... not vegetable soup, but Chili's Chicken and Green Chile Soup.  Alas, my girl JC is a bigger fan of me eating the vegetable soup.  

I follow the rules, so I made an all-veggie soup during a snow day this week.  And, it was DELISH!  It looked sorta like this.... only no potatoes, people!  That's starchiness that's not necessary (from the girl who dreams about fries??)

Here's a link to the amazing recipe for Garden Vegetable Soup... Special thanks to Alton Brown!

Here's what I actually made, including my modifications!  For those on JC, I estimate this to be a FREE food and super delish!

Alton Brown's Garden Vegetable Soup


  • 4 tablespoons 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped leeks, white part only (from approximately 3 medium leeks)
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced garlic
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 cups carrots, peeled and chopped into rounds (approximately 2 medium)
  • 2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 2 cups fresh green beans, broken or cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 quarts chicken or vegetable broth
  • 4 cups peeled, seeded, and chopped canned petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 ears corn, kernels removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup packed, chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


Heat the olive oil in large, heavy-bottomed stockpot over medium-low heat. Once hot, add the leeks, garlic, and a pinch of salt and sweat until they begin to soften, approximately 7 to 8 minutes. Add the carrots and green beans and continue to cook for 4 to 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the stock, increase the heat to high, and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, add the tomatoes, corn kernels, and pepper. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the vegetables are fork tender, approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat and add the parsley and lemon juice. Season, to taste, with kosher salt. Serve immediately.
