Made a big pot of vegetable soup Sunday, this time without any beef as I am trying to cut back on meat for heath reasons. I used potatoes, carrots, green beans, lima beans, celery, peas, cabbage, tomatoes, and corn. Tomatoe juice for the liquid. Could not find any beef base without MSG, so I added some beef stock for flavor. Seasoned with bay leaves and Worcheshire(sp?) sauce. It's not bad, but it does not have that great vegetable soup flavor. Any suggestions or comments?
