Here is the vegetable soup that I make . It
can be made with either chicken, beef or vegetable broth. I use the fat
free, low sodium chicken.

I have this with a sandwich at lunch. For my dinner meal one night I added
1/2 cup cooked macaroni and 3ounces of cooked, scrambled hamburgh. It
was very good and very filling.
