"This is my mother's vegetable soup recipe. I like to make a big batch on Sundays when I have plenty of time to cut and chop all the vegetables. Then, during the week, I dish up a bowl and reheat it for dinner in no time flat. It really comes in handy after I've been working out and I'm too tired to cook a big meal." -Dorothy Duder, Burbank, Calif.
