Day 9 - Vegetable Soup with corn, peppers, and zucchini

Another day on the road (antique shopping and I found some AMAZING things I will have to blog on megkat.com) so I packed a few leftovers and snacks.


Breakfast:


- Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal (it was so good and simple to make that I had to have it again)


Lunch:

- Leftover Quinoa with Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms (and eggplant) from last night
- Pumpkin Seeds


Dinner:

- Guacamole, hummus, and corn chips
- Vegetable Soup with corn, peppers, and zucchini (came home tired from traveling and just threw together a bunch of diced produce I needed to use up. Turned out great!)


Vegetable Soup

2 tbsp oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 small zucchini, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
6 ears of corn, cut off the cob
2 small cans of low sodium V8 juice (no broth on hand but this worked!)
4 cups water
salt & pepper

Saute all of the vegetable until tender in a large saucepan. Pour in V8 and water and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve with basil chiffonade on top!
