  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, celery, and carrots until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir garlic into onion mixture; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove pot from heat.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in batches in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer browned beef to onion mixture in the large pot using a slotted spoon.
  3. Heat onion-beef mixture over medium heat. Stir vegetable juice, beef broth, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, beef bouillon, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into beef mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer to blend the flavors, at least 1 hour.
  4. Stir corn, kidney beans, cannellini beans, great Northern beans, green beans, peas, lima beans, and okra into beef mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until heated through, about 10 minutes.

Delicious soup! I followed the directions as written, however, I added two cans of diced potatoes, omitted the okra and completely forgot to add the peas and Lima beans. It was excellent even with the omissions - very hearty! Be sure to use a LARGE pot - this makes a huge amount of soup. I had to split it in half and use two pots. Will definitely make again...thank you for posting this recipe!

This a great soup. On a whim, I added two cans creamed corn because I wanted some extra sweetness and some "weight" since I didn't have any of the canned beans on hand. This made a great soup perfect for me. Seasonings listed take it from your run of the mill dump and go vegetable beef soup, to a more restaurant quality version.
