Hearty Mixed Vegetable Soup

My sister, who worked as a dietitian for years, gave me this recipe. I sometimes double or triple this hearty soup when my family gathers for the holidays. —Lucille Franck, Independence, Iowa

    I used twice the amount of ingredients to make (4) servings. It is very tasty and is great for when you don't want a heavy meal. I am trying to lose weight and I plan on eating this as a light lunch. My husband is diabetic and he loves vegetables and he thought it was SUPER. I will make this soup at least once a week.

    Add beans for more protein. I love carrots in soup as well as mushrooms, corn and fresh or frozen green beans so mine would have a lot more variety. Making a pot this week! Tamato/Veggie Juice adds a nice flavor to the broth, even the mild spicy one is good.

    Good basic, healthy vegetable soup. I make mine with vegetable stock and sometimes add other vegetables, e.g., chopped parsnip, turnip. I like that it's both diabetic and gluten-free. Thanks!
