  1. Made this for dinner today. I made a few changes/additions. I used canned diced potatoes (drained) and added some chopped cabbage. I also added 2 tsp of minced garlic and 2 tsp of hamburger seasoning when browning the hamburger. I added a little honey just to tone down the tomato taste. It was delicious with cornbread crumbled in the top.

    1. Love all of your add-ins…great way to personalize the recipe (and save time with the canned potatoes)! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Is it really 46 oz.V8 or is it supposed to be 64 oz., i.e. the whole bottle? Thanks for the recipe! Making it tonight!

    1. Brenda – There are actually 46 oz bottles of V8 too – we have one in our kitchen right now! But you can definitely use the bigger bottle if you have it and want to make a bigger pot of soup!

      1. Tomato juice should work. You might want to taste and add some extra seasonings if it is a bit bland!

  3. Nix the potatoes. My gramma made this, but with cabbage. And her own veggies, except carrots. She didn’t grow them. They are in it though. Potatoes for me, no. She also added okra. My dad picked it out. What did he know, lol. I love this soup. I have very few things I can eat for days. This is one of them. My gramma didn’t use V8 but I love the flavor it brings.

    1. We love cabbage in a vegetable soup too! Thanks for sharing your memories and we agree that we could eat this soup for days too!

  4. I have to say, I was leary of how this would come out, but I wanted to try it to use up the V8 my mom keeps giving me, though none of us drink it.
    I substituted ground beef for turkey, and frozen mixed veggies for 2 drained cans. I also added a can of garbanzo beans, corn, and green beans. Last, I diced 2 small zucchini that REALLY needed to be used up.
    It came out just a little bland, so I added about 3 teaspoons of chicken bullion and let it summer another 30 minutes. OMGoodness, this is AMAZING! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    1. Chicken bullion is a great idea. I always think the flavor really comes out when you reheat it as leftovers. Thanks for sharing…we are going to try your tricks!

    1. The recipe makes approximately 12, 8-ounce servings. The nutritional amounts at the bottom of the recipe are estimates per serving determined by inputting the ingredients into a formula within the recipe card. Please note that nutritional values can be different depending on the ingredients used. Thanks!

  5. I made a big pot. I couldn’t find v8 at my store so I used tomato juice. I also used a large onion, 2 pounds of hamburger meat, minced garlic, some Worcestershire sauce and a 24 oz bag of the mixed vegetables. It turned out great so I will definitely be making again.
