This simple recipe takes about 30 minutes to prepare. It simply consists of opening cans. But it is still healthy and filling. A little on the spicy side, but you may change this to suit the needs of your family. Try adding ground beef or other vegetables.

I love this recipe because it is quick. sometimes I substitute a large can (29 oz)of the large cut vegetables for one of the 15 ounce cans and leave out the potatoes. I also add some spicy Mrs. Dash. Read More

This was a good vegetable soup for sure. Aside from peeling and cubing the potatoes preparation was superquick! The next time I make it I'm going to try the addition of hamburger. Read More

This was great with a few personal changes. I did not add the tomatoes with green chiles and since I used Libby's brand mixed veggies I didn't have to add potatoes. Easy! And I liked it best when it had only been heated through just to temperature. The flavor of the V8 was retained better that way. Thank you for a great idea. This was very good. Read More

This is the simplest homemade vegetable soup I have ever made!! I didn't tell the kids it had V8 juice in it and they loved it!! It has become a family favorite and an easy way to get veggies into our diet! The kids now know it has V8 juice in it - but they love it so much they got over it!! Read More

Easy and delicious. As a vegetarian I am thrilled to see meat-free vegetable soups that are a family favorite. I added dill and replaced regular potatoes with small red/new potatoes. They took only a couple of minutes to chop so it made for an additional time saver. Finally I topped with freshly grated parmesan. My meat-loving husband loved it and my toddler enjoyed her very own cooled version as well. Read More

This hits the spot on a cold wet night! I add some ground turkey to it to make it a bit more hardy and it is wonderful! It also works great for my schedule. Which I don't have that much time and I get home fairly late so I don't want to keep my husband waiting too long. Read More

This is such a great quick & easy soup! Even my picky kids ate it. I used a can of diced potatoes in lieu of fresh (quicker) and I added salt-free spicy seasoning (McCormick). Will definitely make again. Read More
