Grandma Grace’s vegetable soup is an old family recipe shared with me by my friend Cindy, whose Grandma Grace made this back in the depression days (thus the cabbage).
My friend Cindy recently shared Grandma Grace’s vegetable soup recipe with me, and I made it that same week. It makes a huge amount of healthy, yummy vegetable soup that is perfect for someone looking for a non-meat soup option.
I am posting Cindy’s recipe as she sent it to me~via text!!! I love the notation about the cabbage:-) How true….The savvy women back in those days certainly did know how to stretch a penny and make a meal from what was in the pantry.
Cook’s Note: Be sure to cook potatoes before adding to the pot. I microwave mine in steamer bags for 5 minutes. Otherwise, they will be hard and ruin the soup (which Cindy said happened to her once). Also, to make this spicier, I added spicy V-8 (in place of regular) and added a chicken bouillon cube.
The soup was so comforting and yummy! I served it with this pimento cheese cornbread, and we had enough for several meals. My husband took it to work two days in a row; he loved it!!
Isn’t it fun sharing recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation? Even though Grandma Grace is in Heaven, her memory lives on through the food that she lovingly prepared for her family.
I’d love to hear from you if you try this soup or if you have a vegetable soup recipe that you’d like to share! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
