the best vegetable soup recipe

My mom was a twice a week soup maker when we were growing up and I'm turning into my mother. We eat soup all the time during the winter. Its just so easy to make a big pot of soup on Sunday and then take for lunchs all week. 
This is our family's favorite soup and being a soup pro you should trust me.The recipe comes from some adorable old ladies at a church in my hometown so you know its good. I make this in my big dutch oven and it makes a LOT so make sure you have a big pot.

Vegetable Soup

3 onions / chopped
1 lb ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cans beef bouillon
2 large cans diced tomatos
1 cup each: potatos, celery, carrots, frozen corn, frozen lima beans 
1 1/2 tbsp italian herbs
1 to 2 cups water
lots of salt and pepper and Worcestershire sauce

1. Brown the beef, onions and garlic. Drain 
2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.


  1. I can also vouch for this soup! Especially excellent served up with some of Linda's cornbread or homemade bread!

  2. oh, i'm totally turning into my mother, too. Her chili and cauliflower cheese soup (from Moosewood) are a constant presence in my kitchen. Yay for cold soup weather!

  3. I'm making a lot of soup lately too. It's just so nice to have in the winter!

  4. I LOVE soup. Today was chili in the slow cooker...mmmm. Will definitely try this recipe - thanks for sharing!

  5. Yum.. So perfect for the cooler weather. Can't wait to make it.
