I know it is flu season and the demand is for chicken soup, but I made soup from what was in the refrigerator or freezer or in a can.  A great way to utilize any leftover vegetables, ham, or a ham bone.   Also, you can use vegetable stock.  I tried a new item I found at the grocery store.  I use the Knorr cubes all the time for flavor, but check this out. 

I have never seen this before is it new?
Knorr Vegetable Stock

I used it and really like it.

Today's soup is Vegetable/Ham

1 Homestyle Vegetable stock (Knorr)
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 bag frozen peas and carrots
1/2 bag lima beans
2 cups fresh brocolli spears
5 slices of a ham
Ham Bone
Water to cover ingredients


Starting soup

Cook over stove top until all ingredients are cooked or warmed up, simmer as long as you have, the longer the better.
I cook my soup in a variety of ways.  In the Crock Pot for end of the day convenience, In a large sauce pan or like I've done here, Dutch Oven.

Serve it up and warm up your bones!
