Hut Vegetable Soup

When I was growing up in Long Beach, one of my favorite cafés served a wonderful Vegetable soup. They've been in business for 55 years and have added other soups, all made right there, and all delicous, but their Vegetable soup is still my favorite. This is my attempt to make their soup. It's pretty close.

Hut Vegetable Soup

10 small White Rose Potatoes, cut into large slices
4 medium carrots cut into large slices
1 large onion, cut into large cubes

28 oz chicken broth, 2 cans
28 oz diced tomatoes in juice, 2 cans
2 cups green beans, fresh or frozen
2 cups green peas fresh or frozen
1 T. olive oil
1T. butter

Heat oil and butter in Dutch oven; sauté onion until limp, and just starting to brown. Add broth and tomatoes, un-drained. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn down heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes and carrots are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
