Garden Vegetable Soup Recipe

Garden Vegetable Soup Recipe

During the Depression, the backyard garden was the source for most of our food. I can remember picking fresh vegetables and then enjoying the mouthwatering aroma as this soup simmered for hours. We children could hardly wait for our dinner of soup, hot rolls and apple pie!—Dorothy Miller, Royersford, Pennsylvania

"This is a good soup for lunches during the winter while my kids are at school. I thought it was a little plain, so I would add some red pepper flakes for a little heat and some minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I'd also add some zucchini or summer squash and maybe some carrots next time and cut back on the peppers, just for a little variety of flavors."
