"I made this today. Delicious! I made a few modifications, as suggested in the comments. I used spicy V8, used 2 pounds of ground beef, cooked 2 medium chopped onions with the beef, added a can of tomatoes, and a big ol' spoon of garlic. Very easy. Very tasty. Will definitely add to the line up."

"I haven't tried it yet but will rate it 4 stars because you use cream of fungus soup. I think I'd substitute maybe cream of potato or cream of celery. Yes, and I'll fry my hamburger and onions together for more flavor. I have my own canned tomato juice that will be most excellent in it."

"Simple, quick, and very good. I used the Spicy Hot V8 juice, which gave the soup a subtle kick that I think it needed. I also love that it makes such a big batch, so there's plenty left over to put in the freezer."

"My mother-in-law makes a similar soup using canned mixed vegs and canned tomatoes. Easy to prepare, tastes pretty good, and is also low in calories. It's easy to vary the recipe according to what you have on hand. Can add potatoes or noodles, and can prepare quicker if needed in a pot on the stove, although the slow cooking improves the flavors, I'm sure."
