Hamburger Soup

August 4, 2015

 

 

I love making soups in the summer. Soup is a great way to use a lot of our CSA vegetables at one time! I am pretty sure that I make soup once a week. Soup night is a great way to clean out the fridge!  I hate wasting! I have started to make double batches, eat one/freeze one! 

Lately, my go-to has been a hamburger-like soup. It is always different but this is the recipe for the base of the soup!

The Ingredients:

2 lbs ground beef

1 cup chopped onion (medium onion)

1 cup chopped celery (2 stalks)

1 cup sliced carrots (2 medium)

1 cup chopped zucchini (1 small)

1 cup chopped cabbage 

2 potatoes, diced

1 – 15oz can petite tomatoes

5-6 cups beef broth

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt (more if needed)

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 rubbed sage

 

The Directions:

In a large pot, brown the ground beef, stirring frequently to break it up, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about an hour until the vegetables are softened and the flavors have blended. 

I have added Kale and Spinach to this, as well as a side of rice. Perfect for summer or fall and winter!!! 

 

Enjoy!
