VEGETABLE SOUP VARIATIONS

  • If you’d like to make this a true vegetable soup, feel free to omit the hamburger. However, I like to add it in to make it a little more filling.
  • Try mixing in other vegetables such as cauliflower, zucchini or squash.
  • Use sweet potatoes instead of red potatoes.
  • Use lean turkey or hamburger for less fat.
  • Top with fresh herbs for more flavor. My favorite is basil, but oregano and parsley work great too.

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
