"My son, who hates vegetables of any kind, picked this soup one night. I made it and the whole family LOVED it. What an amazing way to fix vegetables!"

"The only substitution I made was tomato sauce + water in place of tomato juice. The soup was tasty, but we like our beef cooked until it's tender. Next time I'll simmer the meat for a time before adding the veggies."

"I have made this recipe several times! My husband doesn't care for soup, but he loves this one! If I'm not making for a group, I'm freezing in our family size portions and lunch bowls that I can grab on the way to work."
