I came across this recipe years ago at a recipe exchange through a church group. The contributor didn't sign her name, so I don't know who to thank. But my husband and son thank me for preparing it by helping themselves to seconds and thirds! - Ellen McCleary, Scotland, Ontario

How about some measurements on the celery, onions and carrots? Ihave no idea how big medium is and celery ribs are different sizes. Weight would be good. But use a tape measure if you can't use or read a scale.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 20, 2012

Excellent! I didn't have beef consume so I added 2 packets of French onion soup with 4 cups water. I also added a package of tortillini to stretch it and fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Did not need to have the seasoning corrected. It was perfectly spiced!

This was a a pretty good soup. No complaint from the family. It was really easy to make. I used ground turkey instead of beef and added some frozen peas and a zuchini I had on hand. I would make this again.
