*VEGETABLE SOUP*

Combine in a big pot:

1 bottle spicy V8 juice
1 big can diced tomatoes and juice
1 large can or box of low sodium beef broth
frozen green beans
frozen sliced carrots
frozen sliced okra
(you could add other non-starchy veggies like squash, zucchini, or chopped greens)
Spike, or other salt-free seasoning, to taste
couple dashes lite salt
couple dashes tabasco sauce

Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes or until the veggies are cooked to your liking. This is even better the next day, after the flavors have had a chance to blend.
