A warm filling tasty soup that's easy to make. Healthy with a protein boost from canned beans (I use black eyed peas) and lots of fiber. Reheats wonderfully.

A great vegetable soup! I was in the mood for one this weekend. It was easy to make and tasted great. I added a few left-overs - some frozen corn and lima beans, and some fresh spinach. Used black beans and a 28 oz. can of tomatoes. Very good and very well-seasoned. Thanks!
PS for a vegetarian soup make sure to use specified vegetarian worcestershire sauce - regular versions usually contain anchovies.
I replaced the beans and cabbage with mushrooms! This soup is absolutely astounding. I have made it 3 times already! thanks for a great recipe!
