Grandma’s Vegetable Soup

This is the easiest soup I’ve ever prepared. With all of my childhood’s memorable flavors. This vegetable soup takes me back to my childhood. We don’t do fancy or gourmet, but our meals are made with love. This traditional soup has become a favorite of mine, especially on cold nights. It’s filling, hearty, and comforting. I usually make a week’s worth and freeze it. I have the pickiest eaters in the house, but they never complain. They enjoy every sip and slurp of this delectable soup. It’s not fussy, it’s quite uncomplicated, and it’s a simple dish that’s great for the whole family.

It’s okay to use frozen vegetables for this recipe. I normally substitute the fresh ones with frozen and it is all the same amazing! This soup is a keeper and must-have. Celebrate family time with Grandma’s Vegetable Soup tonight. Enjoy!
