Rustic Vegetable Beef Soup recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

In the mood for lots of vegetables and wanting something light for dinner, this soup was exactly what I was craving. I kept the vegetables fairly large and simmered the soup only until everything was tender.

Loaded with so many vegetables, this was almost closer to a stew than a soup. Whatever you call it, this was a great warm meal for a cool fall night.

Italian Vegetable Soup with Summer Squash is another delicious way to enjoy your garden harvest.
