Garden Vegetable Soup

If by chance, your New Year's resolution has anything to do with living healthier, here is a healthy, easy vegetable soup to help!

You don't have to be precise with how many vegetables you add.. I usually add whatever amount I have in the fridge! Of course, this is always better made with fresh garden veggies!

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
5 stalks celery, chopped
2 1/2 cups carrots, chopped
2 medium zucchini, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes (796 ml)
1 can sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon parsley flakes

- In large soup pot, saute onion in olive oil.
- Add all the vegetables and stir. Then add tomatoes, mushrooms and top with water.
- Add seasonings and simmer for an hour. Adjust seasonings to your taste.
- Blend about half of the soup with blender or all of it if you don't want it have chunks.
