This is the easiest vegetable soup recipe that you can pull off in 30 minutes or less for less than $3.00! With basic ingredients like onion, garlic, potato, and a bag of frozen vegetables you can make a delicious lunch the family will love or a cozy budget-conscious dinner.



2 Tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

5 cloves of garlic, minced

3 cups frozen mixed vegetables (I used this mix from Walmart)

1 potato, cubed

5 cups vegetable broth

6oz tomato paste

2 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp salt


  1. Saute: Saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for 3-5 minutes or until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  2. Stir: Stir in the mixed vegetables, potatoes, tomato paste, broth, herbs, and salt.
  3. Boil: Bring to a boil covered and then reduce to a low rolling boil, uncovered (a little more than a simmer) for an additional 25 minutes.
