Ingredient Substitution
The eight-vegetable juice adds a nice spicy flavor to this easy-to-make soup. For an all-family-appeal soup, however, you may want to use tomato juice instead of the eight-vegetable juice.
Serving Suggestion
For a super-easy and nutritious meal, serve this protein-packed soup with crisp carrot and celery sticks, and pass a bowl of bright red apples for dessert.
Finishing Touch
Add a little fun by sprinkling shredded mozzarella cheese on top of each bowl of hot soup. The kids will love the way it "strings" when they spoon into it. Or top with a slice of process American cheese or some shredded Cheddar cheese-it won't string, but it will add flavor.
