Recipes Soups & Stews

Vegetable Soup

My husband’s grandma Katie makes this delicious Vegetable Soup. It’s seriously the best on a cold winter day. She even adds little ring noodles to the soup, perfect addition! While I haven’t gotten the recipe from her, I did take to my kitchen to re-create it. And I must say, it’s pretty spot on. So I give you… Vegetable Soup! Just like grandma used to make! 

This one, as with many of my recipes, is easily adaptable. Sometimes I include lima beans, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I throw in potatoes, sometimes I don’t. The type of vegetables you include is up to you. And I sure there are many different vegetables that would work great in here.

    Those little ring noodles are adorable. If you added those to any dish, I’d eat it because they’re so fun to eat. I’m getting a cold and this sound perfect.

    Vegetable soup is the bomb dot com!~ I just love your recipes. Brings me back home. My family is from that area originally so I recognize so much of the cooking and geographical references. 🙂
