Alanna from Veggie Venture, who has lots of great veggie recipes, has issued a soup challenge for February!
I just finished a mondo pot of veggie-beef soup that was ummm-ummm good. So here's my recipe.
Vegetable Beef Soup
1 lb. very lean ground beef
1 medium red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 32-ounce jar of V-8 (regular or spicy, low-salt)
4 oz. salsa (regular or spicy)
14-1/2 oz. can Italian stewed tomatoes (sugar free)
2 cups shredded cabbage
10 oz frozen cut green beans
10 oz frozen corn (or, if you're low-carbing, use cauliflower)
1/2 c chopped celery
1 diced red pepper
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp thyme
1 Tbsp black pepper
Saute onion, garlic and beef. Put in crock pot and cook for 4-5 hours on high, or in dutch oven over low heat for 4 hours.
