Recipe by JoAnn

Alternative "diet soup" that does not include cabbage. Recipe is from Good Housekeeping. To retain freshness and nutrients keep a 2 day supply of Basic Soup in the refrigerator. Pack remaining soup in 3 cup portions in airtight containers, leaving some room for expansion. Freeze.

Great! I love all these veggies. I even added a few frozen peas and a cup each of turnip and rutabaga. I didn't have leeks, so I used onion and that worked out good. I also added 2 cans of beef broth and used beef boullion, just because my husband will eat it better if it's got a beefy taste. It has a lot of veggie flavor, we really liked it! Thanks Jo Ann, for another keeper!
