Stitely Soundboard: Olivia and Jeff’s No-Recipe Soup

This month’s Rockin’ Recipe comes from Jeff who came up with a fun, kid-friendly recipe with his 10-year-old daughter, Olivia. If you have kiddos and are looking for a fun way to get them excited about cooking, check this out!

“When thinking about what to have for dinner last week, my daughter Olivia and I came up with this spontaneous solution! We surprised Olivia’s mom, Liz, and brother, Evan, with this great “No-Recipe Soup.” The whole point is to make a soup with absolutely no recipe! Olivia directed most of the cooking, while I was her “Certified Onion Chopper” and got the can opener started on each can.  We set up a restaurant before Liz and Evan got home and took their dinner order, which was of course…soup. The “O & J Soup” (Olivia & Jeff Soup) was a huge hit (and tasted really yummy!) Compliments to the chef!”

Here a some suggestions to make your own No-Recipe Soup (just don’t call it a recipe!) Add some of your favorite ingredients to make it your own! Thanks, Jeff for this fun idea!

O & J Soup Ingredients:

  1. 1 large onion
  2. 3 cloves of garlic
  3. 1 large carrot (Well, we would have used carrot if we had some)
  4. 1 can of pinto beans
  5. 1 can of garbanzo beans
  6. 1 can of black beans
  7. 1 cup of dried lentils
  8. 1 large can of chopped tomatoes
  9. 6 cups of water
  10. 2 vegetable bouillon cubes
  11. 1 T. Italian Seasoning
  12. 2 tsp. salt  (to taste)
  13. 1/2 tsp. pepper (to taste)


  • In a large pan, sauté the large onion and 3 cloves of garlic until clear.
  • Add carrots (if you have them)
  • In a big pot, put in water and bouillon cubes. Warm until melted.
  • Add onions, garlic & carrots
  • Add all cans of beans & tomatoes
  • Add dried lentils
  • Add salt & pepper & Italian seasoning
  • Gently boil until lentils are soft. (About 1 to 1.5 hours but maybe a bit longer)
  • Add spices to your pallet. Add any other spices you think would go well with all this yummy stuff.
  • Serve with a loaf of bread and maybe some olive oil and Parmesan cheese for a great meal.
