Creating this filling dinnertime soup couldn’t be easier. Prep time is only 10 minutes, cook time is 20 minutes, and all of the ingredients should be available at a well-stocked natural and organic food store.
Savory Vegetable Beef Soup
Makes 6 servings
1¾ cups organic beef broth
2 medium organic potatoes, cut into cubes
1 cup cubed organic beef (already cooked; a leftover roast works perfectly)
3 cups organic tomato-based vegetable juice (like V8)
1 can (about 8 ounces) organic whole peeled tomatoes, cut up
1 bag (16 ounces) frozen organic mixed vegetables
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Place the broth and potatoes in a 4-quart saucepan, and heat to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
- Stir the beef, vegetable juice, tomatoes, vegetables, thyme and black pepper into the saucepan.
- Cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
