Reviews forChunky Veggie Beef Soup
"I suspect for a low calorie soup this is pretty good. I thought it was good but it will not be on my make again list. Guess I wanted it to be a little more hardy feeling. Don't let my review stop you from trying it out. It is good. It is low calorie as it is i n the Taste of Home Diet Comfort Foods book. The meat was very tender and it smells nice. Maybe an onion would have kicked up the flavor or something. I am half wondering about thickening the liquid with some cornstarch too."
"This is a keeper served in bowls over rice.My 92 yr old mom loved it!"
