Harvest Vegetable Soup

holidayscentral's picture
This recipe is from HolidaysCentral's 2012 Oscar's Best Picture Inspired Menu, where you can get the full menu and other fun holiday ideas. Since the events that are set off in Best Picture Nominee, The War Horse, are due to a failed harvest, we thought it would be appropriate to enjoy a delicious harvest vegitable stew to remember just how lucky we are to be able to enjoy vegetables at any time of the season in modern times. This soup can be made at any point of the seasons and is flavorful enough for vegetarians and omnivores even when prepared with vegetable stock.
  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Waxy potatoes 1 Pound, peeled and diced
  Onion 1 , diced
  Carrots 3 , diced
  Celery ribs 2 , diced
  Kosher salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Fresh ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Low sodium chicken broth/Vegetable broth 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Green beans 1⁄2 Pound, trimmed and cut into bite size pieces
  Chopped fresh parsley 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Red wine vinegar 1 Tablespoon

1. Prep all the ingredients. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. When the oil is hot and shimmering, add the potatoes, onion, carrot, celery, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften, 8-10 minutes.

2. Pour in the broth and bring it to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are just tender, 10-12 minutes. Add the green beans, stir to combine and simmer another 5 minutes.

3. Take the pot off the heat and stir the parsley and red wine vinegar into the soup. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
