"Hearty vegetable soup for a crowd. Makes about 5 to 7 quarts of soup, enough for 15 people as a meal. Great with crusty rye bread and even better if made the day before it is served."

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Stir in the bacon and saute just to render the fat out of the bacon; do not cook till crisp. Then add the onions, shallots, leek, celery and garlic and saute for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Then, add the beans, carrots, turnip and cabbage along with enough vegetable stock to cover (about 4 quarts). Let simmer for 2 hours, or until vegetables are to desired tenderness. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I enjoyed this, my husband didn't. I must have added tooooo much salt somewhere because it was very salty.

This was a hit in our house. Really delicious and filling. I cut the recipe in half, but ended up using a whole pound of bacon....which made it less healthy of course, but gave it a great flavor! :) Also added red potatoes. I think next time we'll try (a moderate amount of) ground sausage instead of bacon.

Tasty.. I left the bacon out of the soup but topped it with it later.. wanted it crunchy. I had some leftover pork stock so I used that.. will make again

Great recipe I loved it gave it 5 stars even though I veganized it and changed a lot there is no way this was going to taste bad . I used smoked paprika instead of bacon for that smokey flavour I also used black beans not mixed . Think this is a pretty versatile recipe u can add other veggies to . I also added a couple splashes of crushed tomatoes and turmeric.
