Vegetable Soup with Hamburger

I work full time and have a family of four. We sit down to a home-cooked meal just about every night, many times thanks to my slow cooker. This hearty soup is often on the menu. —Theresa Jackson, Cicero, New York

    Great soup base. You can add any veggie you like. I had a bag of frozen asparagus, corn, carrots and cauliflower. I also added some shredded red and green cabbage and about a cup of chicken broth. Very versatile. Came out pretty darn good!

    I love hamburger soup and I have made a very similar recipe for years. I made it as written in this recipe, which was a little different than how I usually make it. It was pretty thick. I usually put in two cups of water and 2 beef bouillon cubes for a more runny soup then just the juice, but then I also cook it on the stove top and let it cook down some. I also did not have cole slaw mix and just put in shredded cabbage. I liked the flavor of the Worcestershire sauce which I have not put in before. I also usually add carrots and celery too. It is a good hearty soup!
