This has become a family favorite. Sometimes I will toss in a little pearled barley, or saute some sliced crimini mushrooms with the onions. But, this soup is fantastic just the way the recipe is written.

I used canned corn and peas instead of frozen because that's what I had in my pantry. It turned out great, such a simple soup recipe.

Super quick and super easy recipe! I love being able to walk away and not worry about the pot boiling over or all the liquid evaporating and burning my pan. That's such a bummer! I paired this with crackers, so warming, hearty, and tasty!

This was a really delicious soup, although I did make some changes. I used 8 cups of frozen vegetables that included carrots, corn, green beans, lima beans, peas, potatoes, and zucchini. I also added some tomato paste in addition to the cans of diced tomatoes. Very hearty, I loved it!
