Vegetable Soup Mix in a Jar

I love a bowl of hot soup in winter and this is such a great way to eat more soup. You can prepare a few jars of soup mix ahead of time and whenever you finish a busy day and want to eat a hearty vegetable soup, you can prepare it in no time! In this soup, I love to put lentils, peas, quinoa or rice. When you want to make the soup, you simply add a few vegetables that are readily available in your fridge and a can of diced tomatoes. You go do other things while the soup simmers for about 50 minutes and then you have that hot bowl of soup that is so comforting.

My friend Melany at Fine Food Factory makes the best soup mixes! I bought a few before Christmas and used them all over the holidays. It was so delicious and everyone loved them! When they ran out, I decided to create my own mix before I can place another order. It turned out so great! I always keep a few jars handy, you never know when you will need it!
