Frozen Garden Vegetable Soup

Save to My Recipes

Frozen vegetables take the work out of peeling and chopping fresh vegetables in this quick and easy recipe. While the soup doesn’t take long to make, if you want to speed up the cooking time even more, cook the frozen vegetables in the microwave while sautéing the onion.
