    Here's my little tweak...V8 instead of the water. YUM. Wish I had some for lunch. - 4/9/08

    "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 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

    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

    This was very good without any extra seasoning like the 'bouquet' . I left out the green beans and tomatoes because I am not fond of them there was plenty of vegetables for me in it all ready. My first SP receipe!! next Grape Salad :-) - 12/4/08

    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

    This has always been a budget stretcher in our home! Other additions are cumin, chili pepper, and chili beans to make Cowboy Soup. Ground turkey and poultry seasoning gives it a fall flare with a bit of squash and turnips. Italian seasoning, oregano, and garlic for a more Mediterranean flavor. - 1/23/16

    I use ground turkey breast when my daughter comes for a visit and it tastes delicious. I grew up with chopped lean stew meat being used in a soup. During the summer, its nice to get fresh vegetables from the Farmer's Market down the street from us, too! :-) - 1/23/16

    In New Zealand we grew up with this as one of the main meals of the week. It was simply called Mince (our name for ground beef) This is great frozen in tubs and can be thawed & heated up quickly with some toast or some frozen vegetables on the side for a quick meal during the week ! - 4/5/08

    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

  • We use frozen mixed vegetables which has corn, green beans, carrots and lima beans. Sometimes we add frozen okra too. I don't think you need brown boquet sauce or Kitchen Bouquet. It's probably just going to add unnecessary sodium. - 1/23/18
