2 8-oz. cans tomato sauce
2 cans whole kernel corn, with liquid
2 cans sliced carrots, with liquid
2 cans potatoes, with liquid, cut into bite-size pieces
2 cans green beans, with liquid
salt and pepper to taste
Bring all ingredients to a slow boil in a large soup pot; simmer 10-15 minutes.
*I usually brown a pound of ground beef and add for some protein and a little extra flavor.
*Feel free to use fewer cans of vegetables or to add cans of different vegetables to suit your family’s preferences. Be sure you always include the liquid from the can or add an equivalent amount of water to keep plenty of broth in the soup.
*You can use fresh vegetables instead of canned ones, but cooking time will need to be increased until vegetables are tender.
*Fresh, hot cornbread is a perfect complement.
