Vegan MoFo #17: Hearty Vegetable Soup

This is a cheap, easy soup. Particularly cheap for me because most of what was in it came out of my garden and I didn’t make the effort to purchase veggie juice: I just reconstituted tomato powder to about the same consistency. I’m still using up the bunch of organic celery I got at the beginning of the month specifically for MoFo. 🙂

I enjoyed it a lot because it was just really basic, and sometimes it’s nice to not be all exotic and just get down to basics. Mr Pine Nut liked it too.

hearty vegetable soup

This recipe was originally found on page 171 of the 1978 Betty Crocker cookbook.

2 12-oz cans vegetable juice cocktail (I used dilute tomato sauce)
2 c water
1 lb green cabbage, finely chopped
1 medium onion, sliced
1 c sliced carrots
1/2 c chopped celery
2 T beeflike seasoning such as Beaf or mock chicken seasoning
1/2 tsp salt (if using unsalted tomato sauce like I did as opposed to veg juice)

Heat all ingredients to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until veggies reach desired tenderness. (The original recipe says an hour. I think not. I did 10 minutes.)

  1. Maybe a little pickled mustard greens?

    I have a post with a homemade variety coming up soon but even this variety works great in soups… no need for beef seasoning with these!
