Groentesoup (Dutch Vegetable soup)

1 quart vegetable or beef broth
3 cups water
1-2 potatoes cubed fairly small (so they get done)
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 roma tomato, finely chopped
a stalk or two of celery, chopped
1/4 cup peas
1/4 cup corn
1/4 cup beans of your choice
1/4 cup carrot, finely chopped
1/3 cup noodle pasta of some sort, crumbled (spaghetti usually)
1/2 cup rice
1 pound ground beef
1 T liquid Maggi or more to taste (substitute - soy sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste
3 T parsley, chopped

Bring broth and water to a boil. Dump in all of the vegetables. Cover and simmer 25 minutes. Add the pasta and rice. Combine the ground beef with the parsley. Roll into little meatballs about 1/2 inch in diameter. Drop the raw meatballs into the soup pot and simmer 10 minutes.  Add the liquid Maggi, salt and pepper and taste. Add more as needed. Make sure your meatballs and potatoes are done!  :)
