Happiness is the harvest of a quiet eye. ~ Austin O’Malley

This Harvest Vegetable Soup is a tribute to the glorious seasonal veggies still overflowing at our farmer’s market.   All this colorful fresh vibrant produce makes me so happy.  I feel nourished just gazing at the beautiful bounty.  We are in that space of time where any day the frost could hit and much of this abundance will fade into memory until next year’s season.  Let’s enjoy it while we can!

The base of the soup is richly flavored with oven-roasted Roma tomatoes, giving the soup so much depth.  While the tomatoes roast, the vegetables are prepped and chopped.  Feel free to play around with veggies that are available to you.  The roasted tomatoes are then blended with veggie or chicken broth creating a silky full-bodied base.  Simply seasoned with fresh rosemary, sage, and smoked paprika perfectly complimenting the vegetables and chickpeas.  This soup tastes like the garden.

If you want you can take it further and make it a meal by adding cooked pasta, whole grains, chicken, parmesan, croutons etc.

Ingredients in Harvest Vegetable Soup:

  • olive oil
  • Roma tomatoes
  • onions
  • garlic cloves
  • celery
  • carrots
  • golden or Chioggia beets
  • cauliflower
  • red sweet pepper
  • zucchini
  • broth, chicken or veggie
  • sea salt and pepper
  • fresh rosemary and sage
  • thyme
  • smoked paprika
  • chickpeas

How to make Harvest Vegetable Soup

Step one

Lay tomatoes skin down, cut side up on a lined baking pan.  Drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.  Roast for 30 minutes, until wilted.  Roma tomatoes work great because they are so meaty and with minimal seeds.

Step two

While the tomatoes are roasting get all the veggies and herbs prepped and chopped.

Step three

While tomatoes are roasting, sauté onions and garlic for about 15-20 minutes until soft and caramelized.

Step four

Take half of the onion mixture, blending with 3 cups of broth and the roasted tomatoes.

Step five

Blend until smooth.  Sometimes the tomato peels don’t entire blend up.  Once it is in with the veggies you may not even notice, but if you prefer an ultra smooth texture you can always run it through a fine mesh strainer at this point.

Step six

In the pot with the reserved onions, add sage, rosemary, salt, pepper, paprika, celery, carrots, beets, and cauliflower.  Mix on low heat for a minute just to coat everything.  Add 1 cup of broth, simmer with the lid on for 15 minutes.

Step seven

Add red pepper, zucchini, chickpeas, and blended tomato broth.  Simmer 15 minutes more.  Test the vegetables for doneness.  Simmer longer if needed.
