Simple, tasty and healthy: what more could you ask for? This has a great texture and the V8 Juice makes it much thicker and 'creamier' than you'd get with a stock and tomatoes combination that most similar soups call for. I made the recipe exactly as described although I think you could easily substitute other 'substantial' vegetables for the carrots and celery (eg Sweet potato, parsnip or turnip). As a bonus the soup freezes very well for those into OAMC. Thanks Gingernut.

I was born and raised in the USA but now live in Melbourne, Australia. I have been here since 1999. My husband is Australian. We have two daughters (born May '05 and May '07) and a yellow Labrador. I cook mainly for my family. I do my best to feed them (and myself) plenty of whole grains and vegetables, with small amounts of lean meats and "good fats". Most of my recipes will lean in that direction, although sometimes I will post something that just tastes good!
