Mom’s Eat or Freeze Vegetable Soup

Mom’s Eat or Freeze Vegetable Soup

Growing up, my mom would make the most delicious vegetable soup at least once a year.  She’d freeze it for later, bring it camping, up to the mountains, etc.  It was a staple in our home during the winter months, and with fresh bread, it was a real treat!  When I was starting my own home, I asked her for the recipe (which was an unwritten, off-the-cuff concoction), and this is what she developed.  It is surprisingly easy and consistently good!!!  Hope you enjoy!

What I Used:

  • Stew meat (1 package from Costco)
  • Beef bouillon (enough for 8 cups of water)
  • 64 oz water
  • 128 oz V8 tomato juice
  • 1 onion
  • 2 lbs frozed mixed vegetables
  • Bay leaf
  • To taste:
    • Garlic
    • Dried parsley
    • Oregano
    • Salt/pepper
