Italian Veggie Soup

What you need: 

2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 cups veggie broth ( I used homemade), divided
1/2 cup potatoes, diced
1/2 a zucchini, diced
1/4-1/2 cup fresh or frozen green beans, chopped
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
onion powder, to taste
garlic salt, to taste
oregano, to taste
Italian seasoning, to taste
2 cups water
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes
1/4 cup corn
1 bunch fresh basil
1 bunch fresh parsley
2 cups baby spinach

What you do: 

1. Heat garlic on medium heat for a minute or two. Add 1 cup veggie broth and boil for a few minutes.
2. Add chopped vegetables and spices, and saute for 10 minutes. Add the remaining broth, water, corn and tomatoes with the fresh basil and parsley, and simmer for 30 minutes.
3. Add the spinach and simmer another 15-20 minutes.

Hearty and healthy.  I'd cut back on parsley or better define the quantity as i.e. 1 TB because one bunch can be too overpowering.
