Yield: 8 Servings
|5 cups||Vegetable broth (water is|
|Not as tasty)|
|1 cup||Tomato or vegetable juice|
|1 cup||Peeled tomatoes, cut in|
|1 cup||Carrots, chopped|
|1 cup||Green beans or yellow wax|
|1 cup||Onions, finely chopped|
|1 cup||Zucchin or yellow squash,|
|1 cup||Leek, chopped|
|2 cups||Unpeeled red potatoes,|
|1||Cheesecloth bag of fresh|
|Erbs of choice|
|(parsley, basil, etc.)|
Bring liquid to boil in a deep soup kettle. Add all vegetables and seasonings. Turn down heat to simmer and partially cover the pot.
Simmer until vegetables are tender. Serve hot with crusty whole wheat bread and a light fruit dessert.
Variation: Almost any vegetable but onions, tomatoes, and the potatoes can be substituted for another vegetable. Don't use the cabbage family because the flavor is too radically changed. Green peas and baby lima beans are a great addition, as is ½ cup of corn kernels.
