What can be better than a simple meal of Vegetable Beef Soup to warm your bones and feed your soul?  A good bowl of soup can be very re-energizing.

The great thing about a delicious vegetable soup, is that you can throw in just about any vegetables you happen to have on hand in your refrigerator, freezer, or pantry.  In this recipe, I stuck to the tried and true basic ingredients.  Just be creative and use your favorite vegetables.  If you also have a beef bone, then throw it into the soup pot to enhance the flavor.  Some people may also like to add beans and noodles.  The choice is yours – you do not have to follow a rigid recipe once you have a good idea of basic soup ingredients.
