    On a whim I decided to cook vegetable soup. Having never made vegetable soup, I was a little leery especially since my husband is hard to please. Success! Not only is this easy but it is also tasty and made my house smell awesome!  -  03 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    For the amount of effort, this was fabulous. I didn't worry about cooking things ahead since everything softened during the simmering. I brought things to a boil after loading the pot, then turned down to a simmer. I used fresh green beans and frozen corn. I also used white potatoes which worked fine. Red are firmer over time, but this didn't last long. Could add some canned tomatoes next time perhaps.  -  25 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great base for soup! I added a few extras like zukini, celery, and diced tomatoes. The whole family enjoyed it.  -  13 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
