Amazing Tomato and Vegetable Soup

There are loads of vegetable soup recipes some with and some without tomatoes this one is with them but made to go together in a way that it can be either served for meat lovers or your vegetarian friends as well. With one little switch up this recipe goes from vegetarian to carnivorous in one fell swoop. Now in the directions it is laid out for the carnivorous way as that is my guys but the sausage can be cut up and put in a separate bowl and then allow those eating it to add 1) as much of it as they like and 2) not use it at all and it is then a completely veggie based soup that is not going to offend the vegetarians in your crowd.

See many vegetable soups lose this point in that they use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth so there is no way to switch it up and although there is nothing wrong with doing so why make a vegetable soup that can’t be for the vegetarians in the crowd. I mean broth is a simple change up in the cooking process and yes it will alter the taste a bit, but it is so much nicer to please everyone then just a few. I mean how would you feel if you were invited to a social gathering and everyone else was eating and you were totally left out because no one thought of your dietary concerns.

Sorry I have been a bit lacks in getting new content out I have had some health issues to contend with and although I really try not to let them get in the way some times they just do. I have been going through all the sites as fast as possible without suffering quality and getting fresh updates out to you. I hope you had a nice Cinco de Mayo holiday and made something special for dinner. I know my family did and it is always nice to have a Mexican night and no we don’t wait for special days to do so it is part of our regular routine as Mexican food is such a big part of what I do. As for soup I do plan on still updating all through the summer even though it is about now soup starts fading a bit and more people opt for barbeque (have that covered too) so I will be looking for more summerish recipes though. So keep an eye out for those and enjoy this one now or in the summer when all those fresh garden veggies are coming in.

One of the all time most popular soups is a tomato and vegetable based soup now this recipe can go either full vegetarian or can have the sausage added in as an option if you are inclined to like meat in your soup. You can even serve the sausage on the side and let each persona decide for themselves if they want it as an option or prefer the all vegetarian way of going with this which might be the more diplomatic way of going if you are say bringing it to a church pot luck dinner or an afternoon luncheon. This is a great way of going when you have friends which are both so it pleases everyone.
