Cut all vegetables into about 1/2 inch dice. Add all ingredients except the green beans to a very large pan or stockpot and stir. Bring to a boil, turn down to a good simmer and cover partially with a lid. Simmer about 35 – 45 minutes until vegetables are tender and done to your taste; stir once or twice as it cooks. When finished, add in the green beans to warm through.
Since this is a very large pot of soup, it’s best to divide it into several containers to refrigerate. Keeps well for about a week in the fridge. Freezes very well in either single serving or family-sized portions.
