Most of you know that we are huge soup eaters here at StoneGable! And I’m thrilled to be sharing one of my families most coveted soup recipes. My mother, grandmother, her mother and generations before made this better-than-scrumptious old word VEGETABLE SOUP! I still follow the recipe that has been passed down for generations! It’s the best veggie soup you will ever eat… not bragging, just truth! Try it once and you will be hooked. And I’m serving it up with an impressive hand made ladle from Polder Old World Kitchen. They are giving one lucky StoneGable reader a very generous GIVEAWAY!
StoneGable Vegetable Soup has that old world, cooked all day taste while using today’s freshest ingredients. It takes time but is so easy to make. And the reward is amazing! The broth is beefy and hearty and flavorful and the veggies are soft and bite sized! YUM!
Don’t you love my beautiful new ladle from Polder World Kitchen? The bowl is perfect for scooping out lots of veggie soup goodness! I am literally scooping out my soup with a real work of art!
And the handle is sublime. I hang it next to my cooktop!
Polder Dreamware is like nothing I have ever seen or handled before. They are small masterpieces, perfectly fitted to the hand and for a job!
My spoons and ladle will be passed down and go from my kitchen to my posterity! I love the idea of my grandchildren passing them down to their children and grandchildren. I love thinking about all the family hands that will work with the spoons and measuring cups and ladle. Amazing thought!

- 10 cups water
- 1 1/2 large onions quartered

- 1 TBS salt
- 1/2 TBS pepper

In a large stock pot add the olive oil over medium heat.
Salt and pepper the meat and add it in bathes to the pot. Brown on all sides.
Add water, onions and dried beans to the meat in the stock pot and let simmer for 2 hours, skimming the top of the water occasionally.
Add diced onions, celery, carrots, salt and pepper. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
Remove the meat and let it cool enough to be shredded.
Add the barley, green beans, cabbage, turnips, potatoes, corn, peas and stewed tomatoes. Bring back to a simmer and cook for another 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and add alphabet noodles and meat. Stir everything together. Serve piping hot!
Feel free add or subtract veggies you like. Please make this with the turnips. They add a wonderful flavor!
