Hamburger Soup

Hamburger soup is so comforting and healthy. Don’t be afraid to change it up, depending on what you have on hand and what your family likes. Sometimes I add green beans, or peas.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs ground beef (or ground turkey is great too!)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 Cups beef broth
  • 3 Tbl tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

Directions:

In a large pot, brown the meat over medium heat. Drain fat, if necessary. Add the onions and celery, and cook until the onions start to soften. Add the remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat. Cover the pot and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the veggies are tender. Add more broth or water to reach desired thickness. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more salt if needed.
