Reviews forVegetable Hamburger Soup
"The cook at the Oasis Restaurant used to make this at least once a week and it was one of the most popular soups on the menu."
"my dad got me some cookbooks several years ago from taste of home i made this recipe shorly after i got them. We all loved it and when i can't figure out what to cook for dinner, it dawns on me....i love it, i do add 3 beef bullion cubes for a little more flavor :) (my dad has since passed away and i think of him every time i eat this soup, as if i need an excuse....i think of him all day long)"
