The "I need to eat more veggies" Soup

Submitted by: AZHIKERCHICK

Introduction

This soup is so versitile. I wind up tossing in whatever vegetables I need to use up and it always tastes good. Sometimes I add a bit of hot sauce for a kick.

A serving is about a cup, just perfect to pack for lunch with a half sandwich.

    A lot better than I expected it! You can add whatever leftover veggies you have.: threw in some green pepper & green onions, used veggie broth instead of chicken, used White beans instead of red kidney beans. I just think it may have needed a little more spice, so I'll kick it up a notch! - 1/18/10

    From experience, the V8 juice is the taste secret. I added canned Canellni beans, made a fiber filled soup.Next time I will add some Campbell's Minestrone soup to the pot. Thanks. - 7/25/08

    I didn't have red beans or spinach or V8 juice but used the rest of ingredients and it tasted great. The flavor of the vegetables was excellent. My husband said it was the best veg soup I have made. - 7/14/08
