A couple of weeks back now I discovered that I was spending about $10 a day on my lunch from Au Bon Pain. A bowl of 12 veggie soup, a small roll, and a drink – about $10. The soup is so tasty but $10 a day for lunch adds up to about $200 per month and there are clearly many other things that I would prefer to spend $200 on besides soup and bread. So I decided to make my own.

15 Veggie Soup

For this recipe I started with the original 12 vegetables (onions, carrots, celery, leeks, zucchini, yellow squash, diced tomatoes, edamame, broccoli, potatoes, corn, and mushrooms) and added okra, spinach and green beans to make 15 veggie soup. I just calculated the cost of the recipe out and the total cost is $18.26 per recipe which ends up being about $1.52 per 8oz serving…which is a pretty significant savings from the ABP version. I got many of the calculations from this website http://budgetbytes.blogspot.com/ this is a GREAT resource for tasty recipes on a budget!
