When I was a little girl, I helped my parents work the fields of their small farm. Lunchtime was always a treat when Mother picked fresh vegetables from the garden and simmered them in her big soup pot. We loved making this delicious recipe. —Ethel Ledbetter, Canton, North Carolina

"This is a great soup for variations. I have made this for years without the celery, which I will try soon. The only spice I've used is a lot of chili powder seasoning. I appreciate the speed of preparation. I can start and finish within half an hour. It is also healthy, low budget so delicious!"

"Perfect soup recipe: easy, hearty, tasty and very healthy!! I used a bag of shredded cabbage to simplify the prep. In the time it takes to brown the hamburger you can get the rest of the ingredients ready to add to the soup. Next time I make this I think I will add a chopped onion to the hamburger as it is being browned and possibly a little salt or Worcestershire sauce."

"Inexpensive, easy, and everyone loved it. That makes it a winner for me! I followed the recipe as written. Next time I might experiment with other ground meats and additional veggies, but it really is great as is."

"My family really enjoyed it. I used spicy ground chicken instead of the beef. That gave it a little kick and was healthier too."
