Fresh carrots, corn, green beans, peas, onions, garlic, celery, and potatoes, seasoned with parsley, thyme, marjoram, bay leaf and basil, simmer all afternoon in a Dutch Oven, giving you a warm, hearty soup that your family will love.

This homemade dutch oven vegetable soup is filling on it’s own, but is delicious with old fashioned homemade cornbread.  This recipe will make a lot of soup, but in our home, we love left over soup for the next day. And, soup has a way of tasting better then next day!

If you do not own a dutch oven, can I just say that I highly recommend purchasing one. I have been cooking with cast iron skillets for years. A dutch oven is what I use to make oven pot roast and old fashioned beef stew.

What Spices Make Vegetable Soup Flavorful?

To make homemade country dutch oven vegetable soup more flavorful, I love using spices. For this recipe, I use parsely, thyme, marjoram, basil, bay leaves, salt and pepper.

Tips for Making Country Vegetable Soup

  • You do not have to use all of the vegetables listed in the recipe. If you do not like certain vegetables, leave them out, or add in what you do love. I have seen vegetable soup recipes that use broccoli and sweet potatoes. The beautiful thing about soups, is that they are easily adaptable to suit your taste.
  • I start chopping all of my vegetables before I begin cooking, this way when it is cooking time, I have all of my ingredients ready to go.
  • Make an extra pot. While you are already chopping up all the vegetables, make enough for a second batch of soup. Vegetable soup freezes really well and it is great to have on hand for busy days.
  • Soup always seems to taste better on the second day as the flavors have time to infuse. Heat up small portions of the soup as needed.
  • You can bulk up this soup recipe by adding beef stew meat. Just prepare the meat as directed in my beef stew recipe.

  1. This has to be hands down the BEST vegetable soup I have eaten. So very hardy and wonderful tasting. I used brussell sprouts instead of green beans and it made it even better. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe. Trying the beef stew this week. Looking forward to it as well.
