Summer’s Bounty Soup

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Cook: 7 hours


14 servings (about 3-1/2 quarts)

Lots of wonderful fresh-tasting vegetables are showcased in this chunky soup. It's a great way to use up summer's excess produce. And it's so versatile—you can add or delete just about any vegetable. —Victoria Hahn, Northampton, Pennsylvania

  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups halved fresh green beans
  • 2 small zucchini, cubed

  • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cubed peeled eggplant
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free garlic and herb seasoning
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium V8 juice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Cook, covered, on low 7-8 hours or until vegetables are tender.

    A great recipe to have when the garden starts to produce in abundance! We found that if we had enough juicy tomatoes, we didn't need the V8 juice. Easy to substitute vegetables (or leave out ones your family isn't fond of.)

    I have the Farm Fresh Favorites cookbook and recently made this soup. It is delicious but for me it needed some meat.. so the 2nd day I added some Chaurice sausage from our local sausage kitchen and it was perfect. Parm cheese sprinkled on top was good, too. I note that here on line there is no listing for fiber yet in the cookbook it says 0 fiber, which can't be correct. I will definitely make this again. You could add rice or pasta, too
