Vegetable Soup ~ Skyrim

You will need:
(I forgot to add the bag of frozen veggies and the 2 cups of rice to the photo below. So sorry.)

2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 of a green pepper 
1 can black beans
1 c muchrooms
1 c baby carrots
6 cups beef, chicken or vegetable broth
1 (14.5 ounce) can peeled and diced tomatoes with juice
2 c rice
1 (16 ounce) bag of frozen mixed veggies
salt and pepper to taste

Cut up the vegetables into bite size pieces.
I used a beef stock base. 
(I made a beef stew a few weeks ago and I saved and froze the broth that was leftover after everyone ate the beef, potatoes and vegetables. I am so glad I did, it saved me from buying or making more stock.)

The best thing about soup is you can put anything in it. You need a base broth of vegetable, chicken or beet stock then the rest is up to you.

I put everything in a crockpot and let it simmer all day. 

If you don't want to use a crock pot, here are directions for stovetop.
Add your choice of broth and bring to a boil.
Add carrots, celery, green peppers and beans.
Boil for 10 minutes, then add.
Mushrooms, tomatoes, bag of mixed vegetables and rice.
Boil for 10 more minutes until rice in tender.
Set to low heat until everything is soft.
Taste test to make sure everything is tender enough for you, be careful!



  1. First of all, I love, love, love your new header! Well, I don't know how new it is really (because I read your blog in my reader most of the time), but still. <3

    Second, this looks super awesome. I love soup. It's comfort food that's perfect for those winter colds.

  2. Thank you, it is still new, just a few months old. I love making soup, it's so easy and comforting.

  3. Hello,

    I admire you went all the way and do this. Quick question, wheres the leek, potato, and cabbage? That's suppossed to be the original recipe, right? Hit me up @DavParrish on twitter, since I'll probalby forget about this.

  4. Thank you @davParrish. I admit I do take some creative liberties with the recipes here. I know if I handed my husband a bowl of leeks and cabbage I'd get "that look". You know the look. The "Are you handing this to me because you want me to throw it away for you? I hope." So I added ingredients I knew would get eaten while sticking with the spirit of the game.

  5. They were able to implement all of my content ideas and suggest the most optimal solution
