Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Good basic vegetable soup recipe can add anything you like sliced cabbage is good to add any kind of spice and herbs you like such as bay leaves and thyme can use chicken broth, beef broth,or bouillon cubes or keep it vegetarian and use vegetable broth Can add rice barley or any kind of pasta even beans like kidney beans or northern beans This recipe kind of reminds me of an old recipe called stone soup Very nutritious great with hot bread, garlic bread , biscuits, cornbread, even toast I always use a large can of whole tomatoes cut up or a large can of diced tomatoes during the winter but use my own home grown tomatoes during summer months MMMMMMMMMMMM Good!

I made this and pureed it right in the pot with a hand blender. Then drank it out of a mug! So good and so filling too!

Yes - that's basically the same for us. And, if you don't have (enough) potatoes, I use pasta...even leftover pasta. And it's a combination of all vegetables...not just the ones listed. Also, I add bay leaves and use spices to taste. I make big pots of soup and then divvy up for freezing. Whle thawing, I check for any other items I can throw in. The only thing I don't mix is whatever meat I used (if any).

Hi Viking, thanks for the input, i am not a soup maker but I really want to be, lol . I have not as of yet tried this soup but i had thought that it might be alittle bland because i did not see any spices added sooooooooooo my question is, what spices did you add and how much of each thank you have a great day , happy cooking

We call this clean out the fridge soup using whatever left over vegtables are hanging out needing to be used. A healthy and easy dish
