cost per recipe: $3.25

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 3 1/2 cups Swanson® Vegetable Broth
  • 2 medium carrot, peeled and sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium potato, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cut green beans


  • Tips

    • Ingredient Note: One of the best things about soup recipes is how flexible they are.  You can substitute your favorite vegetables for the beans and carrots (or it's a great way to use up leftover veggies).
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion, garlic and thyme and cook until the onion is tender-crisp. 

  • Step 2

    Add the broth, carrots, potato and beans to the saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

    I'm not much for following recipes to a "t", I adjust them as I think sounds good. I made this recipe using half beef broth and half V-8 juice for more of a tomato taste. I also added stewed tomatoes, peas, and mushrooms to the vegetable mix. We like meat, so I added ground beef, and I also seasoned it with salt and pepper. But this is definitely a good base recipe to be added to as you like.
