Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe

Easy_Veggie_Soup

The following easy vegetable soup recipe uses V-8 juice as its base. This delicious and nutritious beverage is loaded with the natural antioxidant Lypocene, which gives tomatoes their red color. In addition to those tomatoes V-8 also encompasses the natural flavors and benefits of beets, celery, carrots, lettuce, parsley, watercress and spinach.

This is a lo-cal, heart healthy meal that’s packed with zest. If desired the lean ground beef can be substituted with ground turkey in this easy vegetable soup recipe. Low sodium V-8 is an available alternative as well as Spicy Hot V-8 for that extra kick.
