Like most soups, frozen vegetables can be used instead of fresh, and you'd never tell the difference. If you want to make this one on the stovetop (instead of slow cooker), it takes about 30 min.
Other ingredients needed: canned tomatoes, canned beans, herbs/spices, lentils, and broth
Note: There are also a million other soups you can make with frozen vegetables. See our Spanish Chickpea Stew, Beef Vegetable Soup, or Lentil Barley Soup.
Not only is this a piece of cake to throw together, it's also lower in calories, fat, and sodium than traditional fried rice. #winning
