Vegetable Soup

Winter time seems to drag on once we hit March.  I want butterflies and sunny days, but I get snow, gray mornings, and cold.  So to cheer myself up, I make soups – this is one of my favorites.

Vegetable Soup

1 lb ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

a few garlic cloves, minced

1 medium sweet potato, chopped

1 cup of sweet peas

1 cup of green beans

1 cup of lima beans

1 cup of carrots

1/2 cup of corn (optional)

1 can of petite diced tomatoes

4-5 cups of cabbage, shredded

3 beef bouillon cubes

4 16 oz cans of beef broth

1/2 tsp of basil

1/2 tsp of oregano

1/2 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp of pepper

1 – 2 tsp of worcestershire sauce

Brown the ground beef.  Drain off the excess fat.  Add your onions and cook about 10 minutes, or until the onion is soft.  Then add all your veggies, spices, broth, etc..  Pretty much dump every else on the ingredient list.

Cook on medium heat for about an hour, until potatoes are soft.

Enjoy!
