This is a soup that I came up with while my Dh is on a diet to loose weight. This makes a lot of soup. I make it and use it for several meals, it freezes well. Serve with a crusty whole grain bread.

Another winner! Made this yesterday with some slight changes that only (I think) enhanced this lovely soup. I used homemade beef stock instead of water and bouillon so I had more control of sodium level. Used my own recipe for V8 juice, and added more garlic. Did not use the okra (ugh!). I also used fresh tomatoes as I had them. This sure made alot...glad it freezes well. I don't have beef usually anymore but my friend had to go on a business trip suddenly and had this roast defrosted...I got it, thus the soup among other things. Really wonder why this has not been reviewed before!
