This hearty vegetable soup makes a large quantity, making it perfect for freezing. You can also add leftover roast beef from your Sunday roast to give it extra heartiness. Substitute chicken or vegetable stock for the beef stock if desired. Serve with thick slices of granary bread for an easy and satisfying meal.
Yum! Just did this for dinner with leftover roast beef from yesterday and it was a big hit with the whole family. Really simple to do and a great Monday night supper. Left out the green beans and celery simply because I didn't have any, but added mushrooms instead and they worked just fine. Will deffinitely be cooking again! - 12 Dec 2011
Delicious! Lovely winter warmer & fantastic way to use up left over roast beef. Will definitely be making again - 12 Jan 2011
The soup was excellent, but next time I will leave out the pasta....gets too mushy. I'll prepare my pasta and then everyone can add however much pasta they want to their individual bowls. - 04 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
