This is good but tastes even better if you add a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

This was ok. I added a LOT of spices to it because it was way too bland. I added garlic powder, salt, lemon pepper, oregano, and basil.

This is a great basic soup. While it is a bit bland, it lends itself to many seasoning opportunities. I added half a bag of frozen hash brown potato cubes near the end of the cooking time, because my kids like potatoes in their veggie soup. Also, some hot pepper sauce added lots of flavor.

WOW! Quick, easy, and the kids loved it. This is terriffic for when you have little energy after work. I substituted 2 cans mixed vegetables -worked well.

I thought this soup was REALLY good! Like the previous reviewer, I added Lipton Onion soup because I like onion in my soup. I will definately make this again. You can't beat it for its quickness and flavor!

I have made a soup similar to this for years but I use browned stew meat (cut into smaller pieces) instead of the hamburger.

This is a great recipe. I use browned stew meat instead of ground beef. If you want more flavor, try using Spicy V-8 Juice. Mmm-mmm!

This was very easy and very good. I added some celery when browning the beef and I also added a packet of onion soup mix as another reviewer mentioned. I will be making this one again. Thanks!
