We all just love this soup and it has a million possibilities !
You can have it simple, as is...or add what ever meat you prefer ~ chicken, ham, beef.
There's so much room for alterations and it always seems to come out wonderful.
So, give this basic soup a try, and get creative !!

How to Make Vegetable Soup
- Heat onion, salt, bay leaf and peppercorns, and 3/4 of the parsley with the tomato sauce (and meat if using) for 20 minutes.
- Quarter cabbage and remove core. Pour stock into your large pot of water and add the cabbage, carrots and potatoes. Medium heat is best to get the soup started while waiting for the other ingredients.
- Add cooked ingredients to water. Cover and cook slowly for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. To ensure everything is cooked, test a carrot, potato and cabbage. Once done, and ready to serve, sprinkle in the remaining fresh parsley.
