Vegetable Soup

What you need: 

One large can of tomatoes (whole or chopped)
One can of tomato paste
One 6 oz can of V8 (I like the spicy kind)
Three large potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
Four celery stalks, chopped into large chunks
One large onion, chopped into large chunks
One cup or more large, fresh, cleaned mushrooms (left whole)
Five carrots, cut into large chunks
One quarter head of fresh, green cabbage, cut into big chunks
One can of green beans
One can of lima beans
One can of corn
One bay leaf
Two cubes vegetable bullion
Enough water to cover veggies by about 2 inches
Seasoning to taste

What you do: 

Add all ingredients to a large kettle, squeezing or cubing whole tomatoes, so that their juices become part of the mixture. Cover and let simmer for several hours, adding water as necessary, until the veggies are fully cooked and the flavors have had the chance to mix. (This soup is really better the second day.) I have not included can sizes, since how much (or what you add) really depends on your personal taste. (Hominy, for instance, is something I sometimes add, and is really good!) This recipe has no fat and is delicious!!
