Soups and stews are the ultimate cozy comfort food! I love to curl up with a bowl of soup after a long, cold day. Sometimes, comforting meals can be heavy and not super nutritious. This Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup is warm and cozy and is packed with lots of produce for a nutritious and healthy comfort dish.
Ingredients for Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup
This Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup is packed with vitamins, minerals, and lots of protein. With 6 different fruits and veggies and vegetable juice in the broth, this soup is loaded with all the things that you’re supposed to be adding more of to your diet! You’re welcome 🙂
- ground beef
- yellow onion
- minced garlic
- salt and pepper
- frozen peas
- frozen green beans
- canned diced tomatoes
- regular v-8 juice (this adds a lot of rich vegetable flavor, don’t skip it!)
- beef broth or chicken broth (beef broth will yield a richer flavor, but chicken will work as well)
How to Make Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup
This soup is really a modified dump-and-go kind of situation. It takes one extra step, but then all you have to do is dump in all the extra ingredients and let it simmer away.
To start, add the ground beef to a large Dutch oven or pot over medium heat and break it up using a spatula or this meat chopper. Let the ground beef cook in the pot until it’s about 50% of the way cooked through, then remove any excess grease in the pot. I like to cover a utensil with a paper towel and move that around the pan to easily sop up any unwanted grease.
Next, add in the onion and garlic and cook together for a couple on minutes, then add in the rest of the ingredients. Stir everything up and bring it to a simmer. Let the soup simmer together, covered, for 40 minutes. Ladle into bowls and serve!
