currently looking like a rockstar

The past few nights, the husband has been cooking because I haven't been feeling 100%, but tonight I'm hoping to redeem myself with this healthy, hearty, vegetable soup. With 2.5 weeks to go until this sweet babe comes, a clean house, and a meal on the table when he gets home from work, I will most certainly look like a rockstar in his eyes, right?

Found, of course, on Pinterest

chunky veg soup
recipe adapted from Donna Hay

1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
2 stalks of celery, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1 tbsp fresh thyme
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
2 x cans of chopped tomatoes (14oz)
1 1/2 litres of water or stock
1 cup of pasta (your choice)

 In a large sauce pan over medium heat add the oil, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme and salt and pepper and cook until just soft. Add the tomatoes and water and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the pasta and cook for another 8-10 min. Serves 4-6.

  2. That looks amazing...I'm all about soups lately.
