Soup's Not Just For Wednesday Part 3

Updated on February 17, 2012

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.

      I love soup and bread. Never tried serving it this way. Soup's on every Wednesday; rain or shine. Next week it'll be Hawaiian Bread Bowl with soup- Italian Sausage sounds good.

      Soup is a fabulous comfort food. This is a great recipe and one that would be great poured into a carved out bread (carve a top cover out of a loaf and cut the insides out leaving just enough to support the soup--then pour soup in and serve that way). When the soup is done, you eat the bread with the drippings of the soup that remain.

      Soup and a movie, soup on a rainy or snowy day, or just soup.

      This was a sweethearts2 of a hub. Thanks.

      Thanks for stopping by and please defintely try the soup. I don't brag about my cooking, but this recipe certainly comes with those rights. Please understand I am bragging about the re-creation not the creation of the recipe. I'm heating up left overs now.

      I LOVE Homemade Soups, and Vegetable is one of my Favorites, "Sweethearts2". Even though we are staying in Florida, we've had some Rainy Cold nights and I could definitely make your Wonderful Soup Recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
