Tasty Tuesday: Tomato, Vegetable & Bean Soup

Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I'll share my delights or my disasters. Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 

I was looking for something healthy and simple to kick off the new year 
and found this yummy soup when I was browsing!

With a bit of crusty bread it was perfect for a cold winter night 
and a healthy start to the new year :)

 Lots of yummy ingredients. You could definitely add others into the mix too!

**squee** I got to use my new Le Creuset Dutch Oven that I got for Christmas!! 
I've got the BEST mom!

Chop up your onion, garlic and carrots into small bits and thinly slice celery.
Saute for 3 minutes on medium-high heat.

Add vegetable broth, thinly sliced zucchini, diced tomatoes and tomato paste.
I used about 2 fresh tomatoes and two cans of drained diced tomatoes.

Bring to a boil then simmer 15 minutes!
Add beans and simmer 2 additional minutes.

Season to taste and add a chunk a fresh bakery bread 
and you've got a delicious dinner in under 30 minutes!
