    used venison in place of beef and lima beans in place of green beans. I added a dab of garlic and put it in crock pot for the day. - 9/7/08

    My family calls it Hobo Soup, whatever veggies we have on hand go into it. My family loves it, we serve it with homemade bread. - 7/1/08

    I brown the ground meat, drain it throroughly in a colander & return it to the pan with the veggies & seasonings, brown it all together for added flavor. I disguise spinach by chopping it very tiny. Baby limas, turnip, parsnips are tastey, too. Sometimes I thickened with flour & fat-free 1/2 & 1/2 - 7/1/08

    "Brown Bouquet" sauce refers to Kitchen Bouquet, which is used as a gravy base sometimes. It's old-fashioned and when I don't have enough "scrapings" after roasting meat to properly flavor a gravy, I'll use KB. It is decidedly NOT a BBQ sauce! - 4/5/08

    I have eaten this soup since I was little, my grandma used to make it every week! When I was big enough to reach the stove she taught me her recipes and this is one of my favorites. She sometimes put in a handful of pasta or rice. She varied the veggies depending what was ripe in the garden that day - 7/1/08

    A nice hardy soup. Didn't have green beens on hand but you can add whatever veggie you like. I added some cubed butternut squash to the recipe along with some beef boullion for extra flavour and served the soup with grainy bread. Hubby really liked it! - 5/1/10

    I'm wondering if you drain the fat after browning the meat?

    This soup was always a standby in my family - to this day, when I need a boost, I call my mother and request hamburger soup! I made it a little different - no beans or brown boquet sauce - but I did mince garlic. - 7/1/08

    I substituted ground beef for ground chicken, omitted the carrots as we don't really care for them and instead of the brown bouquet I put in some chicken gravy mix. It was such a hit that even my daughter's friend had 2 bowls, my neighbor tried it and took some home and it was all gone that night. - 4/14/08

    I made this tonight and used turkey instead of hamburger. I also added asparagus, frozen pea pods, and an extra cup of water. It was very filling. - 4/13/08

    I have been making this soup for years now! For many years I tried and tried to make homemade soup but dishwater was probably tastier.LOL

    Instead of adding ground beef, I thought I would try Morning Star veggie crumbles. I added some minced dried onion, 2 tbsp worchestire sauce and some garlic salt. I also added a couple cans of Campbell's Healthy Minestrone soup for some added fiber. Veggie crumbles are great in spagetti also. - 4/5/08
