25-35 mn

Serves 5-6

I like easy meals for Monday night, it is the beginning of the week, kids have homework and I usually am busy driving them around. I think that soup is always a good way to go, plus it is perfect for meatless Mondays.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 jar of crushed tomatoes
  • 4-5 cups of water or vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 grind of parmesan
  • 2 tbs of olive oil
  • Toppings: croutons, crispy quinoa, parmesan, pesto,...


Sauté the onions, carrots, and celery with 2 tbsp of olive oil for 5-10 minutes. Add the zucchini and tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.

Pour in the stock and 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of pepper and add the parmesan grind. Bring to boil then let it simmer for 15-20 minutes until the veggies and soft and nicely cooked. Discard the parmesan grind .

Serve and sprinkle some parmesan on top and and any other toppings that you have and feel like.
