Meatless Soup Recipes

Heavy, meaty, high caloric main dishes gobble up more than 35¢ of the average American food dollar. I think that's too much to spend, especially on meals that are bigger and harder to digest than they ought to be.

For that reason, I've worked to develop lighter, less expensive — but still nutritious — meatless soup recipes for the meals I fix. And my favorite creations of all are soups made from nothing but fresh vegetables, clear water, and spices. Such comestibles are filling, warming, healthful and inexpensive. Plus — if, like many MOTHER people, you grow your own vegetables — these soups will cost you almost nothing!
