Vegetable Soup

I’ve never been a big fan of vegetable soup!  In other words, I’ll never reach for it at the grocery store or order it at a restaurant.  But there is one vegetable soup I love.  It’s the vegetable soup my mom used to make for us and the only one I’ve ever made.  Until now I don’t think the recipe has ever been written down, I just make it the way my mom did.

Recently my husband Paul, asked me to make some of “my vegetable soup” (he’s hooked on it now too), which started my thinking that maybe someone else might just like this easy recipe too.  So now I’m sharing it with all of you in hopes that you’ll enjoy!

How we make our vegetable soup…

We start by peeling some russet potatoes, cutting them into bite size pieces and placing them in a soup pot or dutch oven.  Next we chop up a small head of cabbage and add that to the potatoes.  Cover with water, add about 10-12 beef bouillon cubes and allow to simmer for awhile.  In the meantime lightly brown 2 pounds of hamburger meat (yes, hamburger meat!).  Drain the hamburger and add to the potatoes and cabbage.  Add a large can of stewed tomatoes (juice and all) and allow to simmer for about an hour.  Taste and season additionally according to taste.  Maybe more bouillon, salt, pepper, parsley, onion or whatever your favorite seasoning happens to be.  Add a medium sized bag of frozen mixed vegetables and allow to simmer for at least 30 minutes, until vegetables are tender.

Homemade vegetable soup, the perfect warm and nurturing comfort food! #soup #vegetables #goodfood #recipe Click To Tweet

Serve with crackers or even better, warm bread straight from the oven with melting butter running over the edge. Mmmm!

Thank you for reading, have a great day and enjoy the soup!

I love vegetable soup made with ground beef. This one sounds really yummy. I will make it for sure. Especially as our AZ weather plummets to a chilly 60 degrees! 🙂

A sunny 60 degrees sounds wonderful! Our temps haven’t been too bad, but it has been dreary and rainy. I’m craving some sunshine. Thank you for your comments!

Homemade vegetable soup is the only kind that I like too. I make the recipe that my mother made also! I have never had it with hamburger in it. It looks delicious. Thanks for sharing your precious recipe.
