Soup's Not Just For Wednesday Part 3
It Must Be Wednesday
If there's a pot of hot soup on the stove and the DVD is ready to start, it must be Wednesday. My horror movie friend picked up the movie and I made the soup. Note: she's a great friend whose company I enjoy at all times, but we started years ago abandoning our husbands on Wednesdays to enjoy our love of horror movies. The DVD left a lot to be desired. Not only a bad storyline but poor quality DVD. It kept freezing up for us. But, the homemade soup was terrific. This was the first for this recipe. Well worth repeating and sharing.
Easy Vegetable Soup (from tasteofhome Best Church Supper Recipes)
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 package (16 ounces) frozen vegetable blend of your choice
1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, undrained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 garlic clove, minced
Shredded cheddar cheese, optional
In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink: drain. Add tomatoes, vegetables, beans, broth, taco seasoning and garlic: bring to a boil. Reduce heat: simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Garnish with cheese if desired. Yield: 2 - 3/4 quarts (10-12 servings)
I added about a cup of small shell pasta and served with warm garlic rolls.
This was easy and fast. I was able to prepare after work with time to spare. Well, worth the time and it tasted like I had put a great deal of time and effort into making it.
The DVD could have used a little more time, effort and thought.
