Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Use any leftover meat to add to the soup instead of the cooked sausages. Ham would also be nice.
  • The thicker you make it with the instant potato flakes, the heartier the soup will be. 
  • If you don't have any broth, use beef bouillon cubes, enough to make up 6 cups of broth.
  • Use a different frozen veggie mix for a different soup. Be creative! Make your own masterpiece! Create your own easy vegetable soup recipes.

Oma's Homemade Soup Tips ...

  • When you decide you're in need of quick dinner ideas, making you own soup is a great solution.
  • Take a recipe that you've already made and alter it if this is your first time creating your own.
  • Measurements don't need to be exact. Ingredients are easily exchanged. Add different seasonings. Omit what you don't like.
  • For the hearty vegetable soup above, using a hot spicy BBQ sausage really gave this soup ZING! My hubby was flabbergasted at how marvelous this soup tasted. I now know that when I need easy dinner ideas, this easy soup will be a winner. It's a keeper.
  • The idea of just cooking frozen veggies, instant mashed potatoes, and leftover BBQ sausages to make a wonderful quick and hearty soup was the basis for this one.
  • I realized I had some leftover grilled sausages in the fridge. I also had some amazing broth I had cooked some spare ribs in before I had BBQ'd them. So, creativity blossomed and the following has become one of my very easy vegetable soup recipes!

Oma's Hearty Vegetable Soup with Sausage ❤️


  • 5 lb frozen California style veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower mix)
  • about 6 cups hot water
  • about 6 cups hearty beef or pork broth
  • Instant mashed potato flakes (enough for 3 cups milk)
  • 2 - 4 cooked sausages
  • salt and pepper
  • Montreal Steak Spice (optional)


  • Into a large soup pot, place the frozen veggies. Add hot water and broth.
  • Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for about 6 - 10 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  • Using a potato masher, crush some of the veggies to make a creamier soup.
  • Stir in sufficient instant mashed potato flakes to make the soup as creamy and thick as you wish. (I used one package that normally is mixed with 3 cups liquid)
  • Slice cooked sausages and add to soup. 
  • Season with Montreal Steak Spice, salt and pepper.
  • Makes about 10 - 12 servings.
