I just love the taste of this soup. It is my own recipe. This recipe is good for those who may be Diabetic. Because it is low in Carbs , it doesn't affect your sugar levels much.

Here in Nova Scotia we had 2 snowstorms this past week and wouldn't you know it, another is on the way for tomorrow!!! So I always like to have a nice homemade soup prepared to warm us up after we come in from being outside clearing away the snow. Willie, I want you to know that your vegetable beef soup is awesome. My husband tells me he could eat soup everyday and couldn't wait to sample yours. Well, he can't stop praising how good it is and I can't stop telling him how easy it was to make. In fact I filled a container to give to his brother and wife to have for their supper tonight. I'm certain they too will enjoy it. Willie, your soup is a definite keeper in our household.
with 2 diabetics, and 2 on low carb diets, this was perfect for our annual fall soup picnic. was such a hit my husband took a batch to work and got rave revues(added 1/2 c. split peas to work batch to thicken up, added alot to flavor.. and carbs)
Wild about Willie's soup; even better the second day
