Nothing beats a great homemade vegetable soup quick fix especially on a cold winters day. With healthy eating in vogue, this is an easy way to control the salt and nutrient intake because you decide what goes to add to the soup.

Spices and Herbes
Chopped Vegetables

2-3 onions chopped
2-3 carrots carrots chopped
2-3 branches celery chopped
1/2 of a turnip chopped
cauliflower chopped (2-3 handfuls)
broccoli chopped (2-3 handfuls)

plus any other vegetables of your choosing.
2 tblsp herbe de provence
1 package chicken soup mix
2-3 tblsp chicken soup base powdered add more with taste test

Use a big size pot. Chop up onions and fry in frying pan until slightly translucent and add to the pot. When the onions are fried a bit in advance, the onion releases a better taste. It really does make a difference. Chop up carrots, celery, turnip, cauliflower, broccoli and any other vegetables that you like . Add everything to the pot and fill pot with cold water until water is at least 2-3 inches over the veggies. Add the package of chicken soup mix and the powdered chicken soup base and the herbes de provence. Bring the pot to a boil and then lower to a simmer for several hours. Stir occasionally. Add a lid to the pot and keep the lid cracked open a tad bit. A hour and a half into cooking, take a taste test and then if the soup tastes a bit bland, adjust by adding a little more powdered chicken soup base, only one teaspoon at a time. If you accidentally add too much and the soup tastes too salty, just add more water to even it out.
