V8 and Mozzarella Soup

"Gives you a warm pick me up in 5 minutes, for lunch or dinners. I will give you the amount per person, and you can chose what sort of changes you want to make. Obviously larger amounts do in a saucepan lol. This is what I do for lunch in a hurry. Satisfying, easy and can be dressed up in many ways. This is just the base which is great on its own.."

Ready In:




  • Cube the mozzarella.
  • Heat your V8 in a cup in the microwave to boiling.
  • Drop in cubes of mozzarella and stir until they start to melt.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Sometimes I grate another 2 ounces on top so I can put the spoon down the lake of mozzarella, get some soup and a little more cheese -- .

  1. Easy peasy! I love it! I've never been a fan of V8 but had some on hand for a 'tomato tea' I'd been drinking while sick. I wanted to try something a little different to finish off the bottle I had open and this was perfect. I did pick a little basil from my garden to chop and add. I had pretzel slim crackers on the side...I can't wait to try again with some of the recommendations noted! Thanks!
  2. pretty good for being so easy - i used spicy v8 juice...and, it was quite spicy. i think next time i'd use regular, and add some spices
  3. This was a nice dinner with a grilled cheese, and I would've never thought of it, either! I used Spicy V8 - which, oddly enough, ended up being WAY too spicy for me, and I'm a spice fiend. Maybe I got a zippy bottle. I added some milk, reheated, and it worked just fine. :)
  4. I used Spicy Hot V-8, and some shredded mozzarella. This was so simple and really tasty. I had this with a sandwich at lunch today, and was pleasantly surprised by it. Like Andi said, I can't believe I haven't thought of doing this before! Great idea! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag!
  5. Who knew? Who knew? This is such an easy little recipe, with so much bang. I used spicy V-8, fresh mozzarella, and was absolutely delicious. I even added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the top. I have obviously been hiding in a ground hog hole, as I would of never even thought of warming up V-8, although I confess to using in other food items. These are the kind of recipes and methods I absolutely love, as it just seems like I should of thought of this before. Thank you Marra, for you showing me the way to a delicious, filling, and quite lovely soup on this late afternoon in the Fall 2008. Made for *Everyday is a Holiday*


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
