Elva's Vegetable Soup

Front of Elva’s Vegetable Soup recipe. This box has a lot of vintage recipes collected from friends – this lady must have had an active social life or swapped recipes at church, etc.

I was excited when I saw a vegetable soup recipe because to me that means… well vegetables aka vegetarian. Nope, not this recipe as it calls for 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef AND beef broth. So, I guess the vegetarian husband will have to make it with fake meat to test it or I will make it for a party so I can photograph to share with you.

No method included so I developed one to guide you.
