Nana’s Vegetable Soup Recipe
Nana’s Vegetable Soup Recipe is pretty easy to make, but I will warn you I don’t measure a lot. We cook a lot by taste so I’m going to guesstimate how much of each item I put in. Also when it is time to make Vegetable soup we make a big pot of if so that way we have leftovers to take in lunches, freeze or donate to a funeral dinner or etc. Growing up my Nana used to make the best vegetable soup around and it was one of the things she taught us how to make. Now, I know each cook has their own style and Nana’s soup always used the leftovers out of the fridge. So if you have those make sure you pull them out!!
This is how I do it.
Brown one or two pounds of hamburger, pork, turkey (whichever you want) with salt and pepper on it.
Drain the grease off the meat and put it back into your large pan. Add in 2 quart jars of home canned tomato juice (1 big one if you buy it from the store).
Cube and cut up 2-3 potatoes, and carrots probably a cup or so.
Let cook until carrots and potatoes are almost soft. Then add in about a cup of sliced cabbage. I don’t know why but the cabbage makes the soup.
Then add in a can of corn, and a can of green beans. I always add a little salt, pepper and garlic powder and onion powder in it as well just to make it a little more yummy. (Maybe a teaspoon of each?) I do it by taste!!
Cook until done and you have easy home made delicious homemade Vegetable Soup just like Nana used to make!!
