Preparation:

In a large, nonstick stock pot coated with cooking spray, sauté 4 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 cup diced onion and 8 ounces sliced mushrooms over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until tender.

Add 8 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock, 1 cup sliced carrots, 2 cups diced zucchini, 1 cup chopped green beans, 2 cups chopped cauliflower florets, 3 cups roughly chopped cabage, 1 can (15 ounces) no-salt-added diced tomatoes and 3 bay leaves.

Choose one of the following three seasoning mixes:
• Spicy Creole: 2 teaspoons basil, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon thyme

• Italian: 2 teaspoons dried parsley, 2 teaspoons basil, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon sage, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

• Garden Herbs: 2 tablespoons chopped thyme, 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley, 1/4 cup freshly chopped basil

If using Spicy Creole or Italian, add to pot now. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

Add 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (or balsamic vinegar) and cook for an additional 2 minutes. If you’ve chosen the Garden Herbs seasoning blend, add it now. Remove the bay leaves before serving or freezing.
