You can adjust the vegetables to your personal preference and substitute fresh, or froze for the canned. I often use a package of frozen mixed vegetables for soup if I don't have the canned ones. Either one make delicious soup and it is nice to make when zucchine and other veggies are fresh in the summer. There is never any leftovers at our house.

Notes

This Delicious Vegetable - Beef Soup was passed down from my mother. It is always a big hit at family and neighborhood gatherings and I make it often especially in the summer when I often substitute the fresh veggies instead of canned or frozen.
