I've mentioned once before that I'm trying to shed the remainder of my baby poundage. This is a good, healthy, satisfying soup that my mom told me about.
Essentially it is tomato juice, chicken or beef broth, and tons of vegetables. I put a little Mozzarella cheese on top. I'm not trying to starve myself ;)
I can't remember the exact proportions I used, but here is the list of ingredients and some general instructions. You can adjust to how you like it.
frozen green beans
diced canned tomatoes
chicken or beef broth
In a large pot, on medium heat saute celery, onions, and carrots in a little vegetable oil until tender. Reduce heat, add minced garlic. Pour in broth and tomato juice. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer on stove for 30 - 45 minutes until all vegetables are cooked.
Top with a little cheese.
