Ohio Valley Vegetable Soup

Having my own garden now, I really appreciate the fresh colorful array of vegetables and incorporating a wide variety into my meals as often as possible. Since so many people don’t have the space or time for a garden; finding quick, nutritious and flavorful meals can be a challenge. I am so thrilled to have discovered Frontier Soups and their incredible variety of ready-to-go mixes that provide multiple meals for such an affordable price in just minutes. While so many soup mixes on the market are high in sodium, Frontier Soups mixes have no added salt so you can personalize flavor to your liking. Their soup mixes are gluten-free and made with quality ingredients to nourish wellness and awaken taste buds. 

As I explore and enjoy some of their mouthwatering mixes, I’ll be sharing some of my creations with you starting with their flavor-packed Ohio Valley Vegetable Soup. This mix is so hearty on its own, but it’s incredibly versatile that you can add in anything you’d like or have on hand. I added more of a fall/winter twist by incorporating cabbage, zucchini and broccoli and threw in some firm diced tofu for protein. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Frontier Soups Ohio Valley Vegetable Soup Mix
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • ½ medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 cup of shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup of broccoli florets
  • ½ (16-ounce) package of extra firm tofu, diced
  • 8 cups of vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Hot sauce, optional

Directions:

  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onions and saute for about 5 minutes, until they’re translucent and tender.
  2. Add in the zucchini, cabbage, broccoli florets, tofu, and vegetable broth.
  3. Bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in the contents of the pasta packet, and return to simmer covered for 20 minutes. 
  5. Add lemon juice, salt, pepper, and hot sauce (if using), and continue to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes uncovered.
