How I Make My Vegetable Soup

I love soup.  I don't like the canned, artificial salty tasting soup though.  I prefer to make my own.

Yesterday we went to the Asheville Farmers Market and the yellow and green squash was so much fresher looking than in the grocery store plus they were cheaper.  

I decided to make a big pot of soup.  I wanted to add beans this time instead of lentils.  So I soaked the beans before going to bed last night.

I cut up vegetables and added them to the pot

Fresh carrots, zucchini and yellow squash, half of a large onion, 2 stalks of fresh celery, 3 cloves of garlic, a half a bag of spinach and a half of a cabbage.

I added the beans

And a box of Chicken broth plus a cup of water. I added garlic powder, a couple pinches of salt, 2 bay leaves, a handful of bouquet garni seasoning and some ground pepper. 

Here's the soup bubbling away on the stove on low setting.
