A quick, budget-friendly soup that is great for using up extra vegetables in your cabinet or fridge. Serving this with crusty bread makes a great warming meal in wintertime. Add beef or chicken in with the vegetables for a heartier meal option.

I liked that this soup had a lot of vegetables. It was also pretty quick to put together. The only change I made was using butter with canola oil and I only had diced tomatoes, so I added some basil to them. However, the thing I did not care for is it had a "tart bite" to it. I am assuming it was from the ketchup, as I have never put that in soup, but I don't know. Read More

Wow! Such a yummy and hearty soup! And no meat! I made it tonight and my family loved it. Only change I made was to add chopped carrots and I used Italian diced tomatoes and a little salt. Will definitely make this again and again. Super easy too. I love that you can basically add any vegetable have around. Read More

Recipe is a good way to make use of leftovers as said by others. I added some bulk italian sausage to the soup to give it some extra zip and make it a bit heartier. Read More

This was very good. I thought it needed a little more "depth" of flavor. I added 1 to 1 1/2 tsp turmeric but felt it still needed something. I added a package of Uncle Ben's Brown Rice and Barley medley. This gave it a little bit of a chewy texture. It didn't last very long with these two additions. Read More
