Here is a soup recipe that I received from one of my best friends (who is a very good cook). I have adapted it to what I have on hand, so feel free to do so as well.
You will need a can of each of your favorite vegetables...hopefully you have a few.
Whole Kernel Corn
Potatos (I get the whole potatos and then slice them myself)
Tomato Sauce (i had tomato paste so I used that)
Beef broth (i used four bullion cubes and dissolved in my soup, you can also use a beef stew seasoning)
12 oz. Tomato Juice ( I use V8)
Once you have all of your ingredients assembled find a large pot to add your goodies too. I just bought a cast iron pot at Aldi's a couple of weeks ago for $30 (what a deal) It was a 5 qt. pot and I filled it pretty full.
Start by placing your tomato juice, paste and diced tomatos in the pot. I chopped my bullion cubes with a large knife so they would dissolve faster, and then added them to the mixture.
Next come the veggies. I like to drain the veggies and rinse them a couple of times in the can. On the last rinse I fill the can with water to cover the veggies and pour into the pot.
Now stir everything together and bring to a boil. Let boil for 5-10 minutes and then simmer on the stove until you are ready to eat. You could also dump everything in a crockpot before you go to work in the morning set on low. When you get home supper is ready.
This makes a lot of soup and is great for sharing with friends and neighbors.
I hope you enjoy!!!
