As a southern girl, I grew up eating Homemade Vegetable Soup. My mother always started with corn, okra and tomatoes. That was always considered to be the base for any vegetable soup. One of our summer rituals was to get in the kitchen and either freeze or can some soup base for winter. Mama somehow knew how much she needed to keep us eating Vegetable soup all winter long.

STOVETOP OR CROCKPOT

This recipe can be made on the stove top or in the Slow Cooker. It’s a delicious one pot meal either way. You will want to add this easy recipe to your dinner meal plans.

VERSATILE RECIPE

One of the great things about homemade vegetable soup is the versatility of ingredients. You can include any of your family favorites. When I have the time, I will peel and dice fresh potatoes for this recipe and add them the last hour of cook time. 

We had a friend who often made a big pot of Vegetable Soup to bring to big dinners at church. She always added macaroni noodles to hers. 

My recipe uses only six ingredients which are

  1. Chicken broth
  2. Frozen vegetables
  3. Canned tomatoes
  4. Water 
  5. Salt
  6. Ground beef or ground turkey

Other ingredients you can add

  • Diced potatoes
  • Chopped celery
  • Chopped chicken 
  • Onions
  • Spinach
  • Okra

MAKE YOUR OWN CHICKEN BROTH

I keep the chicken broth in the freezer most of the time which creates such a flavorful stock for soups. Chicken broth can be either frozen or canned.
