  1. EAsy recipe, still recovering from a cold and had lots of veggies to use. I also used a 46 oz jar of low sodium v8. Added some italian seasonings, cayenne pepper (trying to kick this sore throat), and various veggies that included mushrooms, canned green beans, edamame, canned corn, carrots, onions, celery, zucchini and some - Read more ...
  2. This is a great easy soup. We try to eat healthy so I substituted the ground beef with lean ground turkey. I followed the suggestions of others and used V8 instead of regular tomato juice. I also added some chopped fresh parsley garlic marjoram celery salt and basil. Delicious!!
  3. I really like this soup. I only had 30oz. tomato juice so I used chicken broth to make up the difference. I also only used one big potatoe and that was plenty. I will be making this soup again.
  4. Good basic flavors. I added more seasoning because it was a bit bland. I added garlic, basil, thyme, and marjoram.
  5. Loved this simple soup! I also used V8 juice and added a small can of green peas plus a bay leaf. Adding a small can of creamed corn near the end of cooking time will give vegetable soup a silky texture. Just be careful not to leave it on the burner too long afterward without - Read more ...
  6. I will definely be making this. I found a gold mine recipe on a Barley box that is similar to this. It has water and beef stock or cubes instead of the tomato juice but calls for 1/2 cup of barley. I had never used barley but it sure makes the soup filling.
  7. This is very similar to a soup that I make. I use ground beef, various veggies and V8 juice rather than regular tomato juice. I've never added ginger, but sometimes add minced garlic. It's delicious and freezes well.
  8. This is a great soup! I usually make soups, eat them one day and then never touch the leftovers. Not this one! I loved it and ate it all. It is easy to make and tastes great.
  9. this was really good. All I changed was adding some celery I had on hand and a bit of garlic. will make this again for sure!
