Fall Comfort Food
Vegetable Sweet and Sour Soup

 For this sweet and sour soup it's pretty much what you have on hand or what you like. I am eating low carb so I'm using mostly green veggies, all with a blast of flavor. Carrots add a little sweet, while the other veggies add a sour taste, okra, green tomatoes, onion, green and red peppers, and cabbage. I've also given up red meat for now so no beef stock. 


     Low Carb 


 For this soup, I used a large stock pot and filled it with six cups of water. Bring to a boil and add vegetables and two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. After everything comes to a boil set to a slow boil and cook vegetables until tender. Salt and pepper to taste. Next 
 add two 14 1/2 oz cans petite diced tomatoes. The final ingredient is salsa verde sauce, as much or little as you like. Low simmer for all  flavors to combine. Generally I use one to two cups of chopped vegetables. No set amount, just use what you like. The flavor of this soup is amazing!

With a chill in the air soup is the perfect light supper. A tray to take outside set with tea towels for napkins. Just add your favorite bread or crackers if you are not low carb

Pumpkin bowls for a fall touch

A perfect light meal

 I always make enough to have leftovers to serve for lunch for a couple of days

If you try my soup recipe I hope you'll let me know how you like it. I hope you will leave a comment, it's the only way I know you were here.


  1. Oh I was here! I think I will make the soup tomorrow. It is supposed to be cold and raining all day. This will be perfect!

  2. Your soup sounds delicious, especially with the added salsa verde, yum!
    I will most certainly be making this as soup is one of my favorites and I love having extra for my noon meal.
    Thank you for sharing your goodness with us~

  3. Emily, Your soup sounds perfect! Your presentation is so pretty. Love your pumpkin tureens.
    I think my husband will love your soup. Thanks so much for a new recipe.

  4. This sounds delicious and I like the idea of adding salsa verde! We woke up to a chilly 36 degrees so I'll be making soup today, probably chicken tortilla, and some banana bread with several very overripe bananas. Enjoy your day!

  5. Using the salsa verde is so smart Emily! It sounds wonderful and your fall tray is gorgeous! Good for you for eating so healthy!

  6. Emily, your soup looks delicious and certainly something I'd like to have for dinner tonight.Thanks for sharing. Your CC tray is a perfect backdrop for this setting. Love the presentation!

  7. Hi Emily! Your soup sounds like the perfect low carb meal, and a nice warm soup for Fall. Even though I bake a lot, I have eaten low carb for 20 years now, and have kept the weight off. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us. Your CC tray looks so pretty all set with your mini pumpkin soup tureens, and lovely napkins. Enjoy this last week of October.

  8. OH, yay! We'll be visiting the kids this week and they are five minutes from TJ's so I'm going to bulk up on Salsa Verde and then this will be on the menu. It sounds delish, healthy and easy peasy! Oh, perfect for the season. Thanks!

  9. Coming back to say I made your fabulous soup and it was wonderful!
    Thank you for sharing your recipe with us. :-)

    Have a beautiful weekend~
