Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup
2 - 2 pound bags of frozen mixed vegetables
2 bags of frozen tater tots
1 can V8 juice
1 pound of ground beef
1 large onion diced, or handful of dried onions
3 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste
Brown and drain the beef and add it to a large stew pot.
Add to that, all of the ingredients.
Add water as needed to keep the soup covered in liquid.
Add seasoning to taste.
Sometimes I put this in a large slow cooker and let it simmer all day. It is really good with a fresh batch of corn bread.
Pairs Well With
I make this soup up when our family starts getting what I call the "punies" - or not feeling all that well.
This makes a huge pot of soup that lasts a few days. By the time we have consumed the whole pot of soup, we all feel better.
