(this is my recipe that I use a lot, I just omitted the elbow macaroni for cabbage & potatoes)
1 lg. can crushed tomatoes
1 lg. can petite diced tomatoes
1 lg. bag of frozen mixed veg.(16oz)
the amount depends on how much you want I used about 1/2 cabbage & about 9 potatoes
using one of the lg tomato cans add 2 & 1/2 cans of water
1 lg tbsp salt/pepper
1 stick of butter
touch of veg. oil
pinch of parsley
pinch of onion flakes ( I have also used fresh onions before)
Bring soup to a boil, turn down heat to a slow bubble, cocking the lid to the side, cooking 25-30 min, with using the potatoes instead of the noodles time will be a little longer

That white bean soup looks great. Your vegetable soup looks just like what I made last night. It was good, too. Thanks for linking to TMTT.
