My Meatless Mondays - Hubby's Veggie Soup

I have a cold which is keeping me less than at full speed so Hubby made a delicious vegetable soup which is magical.  I must share it with you and just think, it is not chicken soup and it works.

Ta's Veggie's Soup   (made in crockpot)


1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
3 cups water
2 medium potatoes, diced
2 celery ribs, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
1 medium onion,  chopped
2 teaspoons fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup lentils


Hubby's method.  Throw it all in the pot.  Cover with additional water, if it is not covered, completely.  Say a prayer.  Turn pot on high and cook for 6 hours.  Turn down heat to low and leave until ready to eat which was about an hour.  

He gets bragging rights and deserves them.

Let's see what we can have with Hubby's Soup....
I love Michelle's Cheese Spread aka Mom's  Cheese Ball.   You will find this at Ms. enPlace.  Michelle is full of love and humor and I know you will all enjoy her and her musings.

Next, we happily have Food Corner's Rainbow Cupcake.  This is her version and different than the ones, I have seen.  It is a beauty.

Then, we go to a main course, Pumpkin Black Bean Enchilada from Veggie Converter.  If you want to learn how to cook without meat, this is the place to go for creative and tasty dishes.

Finally, Asparagus Risotto from Gluten Free Pantry.  Check her out for good recipes and great health information.
