It is officially that time of year. The leaves have changed and  started falling from the trees. The crisp cool mornings wake us in the morning, making us want to hold on to those last few warm moments as we wake up for the day. And the night greets us at supper time, so I have made a big pot of Vegetable Soup to help welcome this time of year into our lives.  Many people have vegetable soup in their recipe box. And I am pretty sure every vegetable soup  recipe is different from the next. This is how I make our vegetable soup. I hope you give it a try this season.

I start my vegetable soup with beef. I know that sounds weird, but, what is vegetable soup with out beef? (Maybe vegetable beef soup?) Anyway, I take 2 pounds of ground beef and brown it up. Drain the grease off of it and set it aside.

Next, I take about 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 medium chopped onion and saute the onions until tender and translucent. Then I add 3 cloves of minced garlic and saute them slightly.

Now that the garlic and onions are translucent, we start dumping the rest of the ingredients into the pot. 3 cups of frozen mixed veggies (corn, carrots, peas and green beans), 3- 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes (i drained 2 cans),  48 oz of beef broth and the ground beef. Mix everything up and start simmering.

I then add 4 peeled and chopped potatoes to the pot with 2 cups of water and 4 beef bouillon cubes. Mix everything up and let it start cooking.

Now I add the flavor booster! 2 tablespoons of dried parsley, 2 tablespoons of dried basil, 2 tablespoons of lovage (if you don’t own lovage, you can add 2 stalks of celery) 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, and 1 teaspoon of onion powder.

After the soup has simmered for 2 hours the veggies should be nice and tender. Pour yourself a nice bowl and salt and pepper to taste!
