Hey there everybody…just popping in to share this super simple easy one pot vegetable beef soup recipe. This is one of those recipes that you can change to fit your family’s tastes, likes, and dislikes. Personally, I don’t enjoy lima beans, so I don’t put them in this soup. If you adore lima beans…definitely dump them in! My mom always added cabbage, so that’s a good option as well.

The only vegetables that might not be good in this soup are those from the squash family. As the soup cooks, these veggies tend to get soft and fall apart. I use canned goods (broth, tomato juice, tomatoes) straight off the grocery store shelf. If you have juice or veggies you have canned yourself…all the better. Less preservatives for sure.

When you have this vegetable beef soup assembled and on the stove, don’t be tempted to add more pasta. It somehow takes on a life of its own, and multiplies like mad! If the pasta expands and makes the soup too thick, just add more beef broth or tomato juice. The bay leaf and celery salt are optional, but they really do add a nice flavor. Sometimes in place of the bay leaf, I add fresh thyme.

I’ve made this one pot vegetable beef soup so many times that I know the recipe by heart…but each time I make it, it tastes just a bit different than the time before. If you have time, it’s delicious to make a pot roast, and use that meat for the vegetable soup. Make sure to add the broth from the pot roast to the soup for an extra rich and hearty taste. Happy soup making!
