Hey everyone! I’m Taylor from the blog greens & chocolate, where I blog about healthy recipes along with the occasional dessert recipe. I wholeheartedly believe in moderation as being the key to health, so I insist on a side of chocolate with my kale salads.
In addition to being a food blogger, I live in Minnesota with my husband and three kids, ages 5, 3, and 7 months. I enjoy running in the warmer months, cross country skiing in the winter, and yoga year-round!
Even though I’m a food blogger and coming up with recipes is my job, some nights I still struggle with what to make for dinner.
I love having go-to recipes that I can make on nights that I’m lacking inspiration, and this Easy Vegetable Beef Soup is one of those recipes. It’s a soup recipe that I’ve been making for a long time now, and my husband and kids absolutely love it – even my 7-month-old!
What goes into vegetable beef soup?
The ingredients in this vegetable beef soup are pretty simple. It starts with ground beef. You can use whatever kind of ground beef that you typically use. We typically buy organic beef from Costco – it’s such a great deal and we love organic meat!
The vegetables in this soup are white onion, Yukon gold potatoes, and a bag of frozen mixed vegetables that includes corn, peas, carrots, and green beans.
The other ingredients are garlic, salt, olive oil, tomato sauce, beef broth, dried basil, and dried oregano.
How to make easy vegetable beef soup
This hearty soup is so simple to make.
First, you’ll start by browning the ground beef. Once browned, the onion is cooked followed by garlic and some salt. After the onion is softened, the potatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, basil, and oregano are added and simmered until the potatoes are softened.
Depending on how large you cut your potatoes, this will take between 15-20 minutes.
Lastly, you’ll add the frozen vegetables and cook for another 5 minutes, until the whole soup is warmed through.
We served this soup topped with fresh parsley, along with fresh kaiser buns that I bought that day. It was the perfect comforting soup for a cold winter evening!
