This is like a hearty vegetable soup. Original recipe says in twenty five minutes, I go for the 45 minutes. Serve with garnishes, sour cream, cheddar, and fresh plum tomatoes on top. Expect to have enough for two or even three servings per person, it's that tasty. Items are always in the pantry in this one!!!

Loved this delicious and hearty soup! Soup lovers that we are, it made for a wonderful lunch. I thought 45 minutes cooking time about right too. The boys loved the baby corn cobs - will be keeping extra cans on hand. Other then not having the snow peas, made as posted and we too loved this veggie combination and spice combo! Thank you for another of your delicious recipes!

My family had this for lunch today, and what can I say; AWESOME!! This is a nice chunky thick soup, with a wonderful veggie combination. Even my 5 year old liked it, his favourite was the tiny cobs of corn. And adding the grated cheddar cheese and sour cream on top was a great idea, and a wonderful way to dress up veggie soup... This is going to be a regular meal in our house!
