Some simple vegetable soup recipes are AllRecipes.com's Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup and Betty Crocker's Easy Vegetable-Beef Soup. AllRecipes.com's soup calls for cooking chicken broth, tomato-vegetable juice and water with a diced potato, carrots, celery, tomatoes, green beans and corn for 30 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and Creole seasoning.
To make Betty Crocker's vegetable soup, first make a seasoning blend by combining prechopped onion, finely chopped garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Combine the seasoning blend with 1 pound of ground beef and cook the beef for 5 to 7 minutes. Add in 2 1/2 cups water, a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, a can of chopped tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
