The reason why I make this soup is because I love canned veg beef soup, but it is loaded with salt and other preservatives so I have come up with my own which is very close to the real thing, but healthier and better. Also it is not a thick soup, because I love to put crackers in my soup.

    While roast is cooking make sure to add water to keep broth from cooking away. At the very last add the can of peas, turn off heat let set for 15 minutes and serve. Enjoy, very good with crackers. I use club crackers. Also good with grilled cheese.
