I made this as directed with one exception. I added a little cabbage. I made it on a Sunday and ate it on Monday. I thought the taste of the ketchup was overpowering. I don't like my food sweet it all. I froze it all with hopes that it will mellow by the time I defrost. Next time I would leave the ketchup out. I think it would be better without it.

I love this soup, I make often though I found it in the newspaper as a recipe request from Witchitah Pub here in Oregon. I do like variety of vetetables in my soup and this has what I like.Since it has so much celery do not substitute celery salt as celery is so good cooked. The recipe will not taste the same.

Excellent soup, I used really lean hamburger 96/4 and only had 1 carrot. It turned out so good DH didn't even notice the lowfat hamburger. I will definitely make again!
