Thank you to Knorr® for sponsoring this recipe.
When I was a little girl, my whole family would visit my grandma’s house on Sundays for her good home cooking. Her love language, like mine, was food-sharing, and a recipe that she shared with us over and over again was her Caldo de Pollo — a delicious chicken, vegetable soup. Since it is Hispanic Heritage Month, I thought it’d be nice to share my plant-based take on my favorite childhood recipe.
What I especially love about this meal is that I can use her exact recipe, including her favorite Knorr bouillon, simply by swapping the chicken version for the new Knorr® Selects Vegetable Granulated Bouillon. It provides the flavor that I crave and includes recognizable plant-based ingredients.
I love that this recipe is both easy to make (all you need is Knorr® Selects Vegetable Granulated Bouillon and your favorite veggies) and affordable (recipe can be made for just ~$2.50 per serving).

In a large pot (with a lid) over medium heat, add the oil, onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and zucchini, and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until vegetables are tender.
