Hearty vegetable soup for a crowd. Makes about 5 to 7 quarts of soup, enough for 15 people as a meal. Great with crusty rye bread and even better if made the day before it is served.

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Stir in the bacon and saute just to render the fat out of the bacon; do not cook till crisp. Then add the onions, shallots, leek, celery and garlic and saute for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Then, add the beans, carrots, turnip and cabbage along with enough vegetable stock to cover (about 4 quarts). Let simmer for 2 hours, or until vegetables are to desired tenderness. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I enjoyed this, my husband didn't. I must have added tooooo much salt somewhere because it was very salty.
