One of the great things about Vegetable soup is it’s so versatile. You can make this soup exactly to your liking. Switch out the vegetables for vegetables you already have on hand. You can add whatever vegetables you like to this soup. Also, use broth you already have. You can use chicken, beef, or vegetable broth, so instead of going out and buying a bunch of new ingredients use what you already have on hand.

As a kid summer was my favorite season. I loved not having to wake up early to go to school, spending my days in the pool, and going on vacations with my family. I just always thought summer was the best season ever. Now that I am an adult, Summer is probably my least favorite season. Fall is now my favorite season of the year. I love the fall months for many reasons. I love to watch the leaves change coolers, I enjoy the cooler nights, the smell of fall scented candles, but my favorite part of fall is that is also soup season. Cooler weather and shorter days, makes the perfect time for soup and stews, and one of my favorites fall dishes is vegetable beef soup.

How to make vegetable beef soup:
