This is the simplest soup I’ve made. With all the nostalgic flavours from my childhood. This vegetable soup reminds me of home. Where we don’t do fancy or gourmet but the meals are prepared with love. This old-fashioned soup has been my go-to, especially during cold nights. It’s very comforting, hearty, and filling. I normally make a week worth and just freeze it. I have pickiest eaters but they never complain. They love every sip and gulp of this delicious soup. Not fussy, pretty straightforward, and a simple dish that is excellent for the whole family.
It’s okay to use frozen vegetables for this recipe. I normally substitute the fresh ones with frozen and it is all the same amazing! This soup is a keeper and must-have. Celebrate family time with Grandma’s Vegetable Soup tonight. Enjoy!
