Hearty Vegetable Hamburger Soup

"You'll get a thumbs-up when you serve this veggie-packed soup," says Diane Mrozinski of Essexville, Michigan. You can substitute ground turkey for the beef, if you like, and easily double or triple the recipe to serve more people.

    Very good recipe. Quick, inexpensive and not a lot of ingredients. I did have to add some spices because it is very bland. Also, I used a can of tomato sauce with the v8 juice. I tripled the recipe and my husband loved it! Will definitely make this soup again.
