Cooking Thursday

Last week I made soup from a recipe I got several years ago from a friend at work.  It's vegetable soup and is very healthy, but it's also so good!  Serve it with a crusty roll for the perfect winter meal.

Vegetable Soup

1 1/2 cup hot water
2 tablespoons beef soup stock base
1 quart V8
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Rosemary
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon Mrs Dash
3 bay leaves
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 can mixed vegetable, including liquid
2 cups chopped cabbage

Stir together the hot water and beef base in a 6 quart crock pot.  Stir in the V8.
Add spices and bay leaves, then stir in all the veggies.
Cook on low for 8 hours.  Remove bay leaves before serving.

Sounds great! I bet the V8 does a lot for the flavor. Sometimes I use a tomato bouillon in my veggie soups but the tomato flavor is pretty mild. I think V8 would be a really good addition. Thanks for sharing, Mari!

Your soup looks delicious... anything with V8 gives amazing flavor! I like how it cooks all day in the slow cooker too :)

Oh this looks SO yummy. Makes me wish I had some V8 here at the house because we are having a cold and very snowy day today. I'll copy this down so we can have some when I can get out to the store. :-)

Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
