Vegetable Soup:

This version of veggie soup is my absolute favorite, I have been making it since I can remember.  I love that it’s a healthy soup but it’s also really cozy, filling, and welcoming on a cold day.  My vegetable soup is incredibly simple to make using diced potatoes, frozen mixed vegetables, and a can of corn.  The great thing about this soup is that you can also use any kind of diced fresh vegetables, or all canned vegetables if that’s what you have on hand!

  1. Will try this recipe. Sounds delicious and easy to make. Do you have any recipes for soup that can be canned for the winter.

  2. I made this exactly as written in the crockpot for a nice relaxing Sunday dinner. For something so easy to put together with minimal ingredients it was very tasty. We topped ours with fresh grated parmesan cheese and served with a Asiago loaf of bread. Thanks SO much for sharing your recipe, I will be making this over and over.
