Mom's Veggie soup

In reference to the previous post, my mom makes the best homemade veggie soup. It's not so much a soup as a pot of mixed vegetables with a little broth. It's great on cold days and one of my favorite things she makes. So here is a quick recipe.

1 head of green cabbage, chopped
1 10 oz bag of frozen corn
2 large cans of tomatoes ( I like whole)
1 10 oz bag of mixed vegetables
2 large onions chopped
4 large cloves of garlic, minced
water or broth

Throw everything into the largest pot you have, add just enough water or broth to come to the top of the vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, put a lid on it. Cook for aproximately one hour, or until vegetables are tender. Serve steaming hot with homemade bread, cornbread or biscuits.

You can add whatever vegetables you have to this. When it's on sale or we can afford it, mom throws some cubed up beef that has been browned into it. Chicken and ground meat is also good.
