My mom made this soup when I was young. I have always loved her soups. When I was able to start cooking by myself I fell in love and have added and taken items away, but my fiance love my soups. And he isn't even big on soups. I hope your family enjoys the soup as much as mine does.

I went into this recipe knowing that I was going to make 2 changes. I had ground beef and so that is what I used and then I couldn't imagine veggie soup without potatoes so I diced up a couple and added them. An hour into cooking I gave it a stir and just felt there was way too much broth compared to the amount of veggies. All I had in the pantry was a can of pinto beans so I drained them and threw them in there. This recipe is good but I honestly think it needs more veggies than it calls for. I suggest using at least 2 cans of green beans or maybe even adding a can of mixed veggies to the mix. 2 hours was also plenty of cook time for me. Read More

This soup is excellent. I worked with what I had on this winter day. I nudged the simple recipe by using two 12oz cans V8 two bags frozen mixed vegetables and no tomato sauce or paste. Instead of fresh beef broth I had about 3 cups of frozen beef broth leftover from a roast this summer; the frozen beef broth had diced tomatoes in it. For medicinal purposes I added 1 teaspoon of celery salt. Read More

Made this into a Tomato Beef soup by adding sliced carrots in place of the green beans and corn, and replaced the can of tomato sauce with 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Served with egg noodles and it tastes just like my Grandmother used to make! Read More
