21 Ingredient Vegetable Soup

100% would make this recipe again!
Recipe Description
Aunt Estelle made an incredible vegetable soup, which she would give away in huge jars to family and friends. She always cooked in super large quantities, an enormous undertaking involving two or three pots, but after I sent her a 16 quart stockpot, things really got out of hand! With this farmers' market in a bowl, no snap to prepare, it was always a treat to be on the receiving end. The following recipe, believe it or not, is half the original.

4 Ounce(oz)  pearled barley, rinsed and picked over
4 Ounce(oz)  dried split peas, rinsed and picked over

2 Pound(lb)  carrots, thinly sliced
3 Cup(c)  celery, chopped
1   green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and chopped
1   red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and chopped
2   parsnips, thinly sliced

2   medium zucchini, thinly sliced
10 Ounce(oz)  frozen french cut green beans
10 Ounce(oz)  frozen corn kernels
10 Ounce(oz)  frozen peas


Place the lima beans in a small sauce pan and add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the lima beans to steam covered, for at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, tie the garlic, green portion of the leek and chopped dill in a cheesecloth bag. Combine the soup mix (beans only, set aside the flavoring packet) with 5 quarts water in a 12 quart stockpot. Add the celery root, rutabaga and cheese cloth packet, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Drain the lima beans and add them to the stockpot. Stir in the barley, split peas onion, carrots, celery, bell peppers, parsnips eggplant, sweet potato, 1 tablespoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Bring back to a boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Add the zucchini and continue to simmer covered, for 40 minutes more. Stir the frozen vegetables into the soup, along with the flavoring packet from the soup mix. Bring back to a boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the vegetables are cooked to your liking, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, or to taste. Remove the celery root, rutabaga and cheese cloth packet before serving.

Additional notes

Tip: I like to use my immersion blender to puree the soup just a tad, not into a smooth blend, but just to thicken it, leaving lots of chunky vegetables.
