Veggie Beef Soup

A pot of soup is a quick and easy way to have a hot meal ready come lunch time. This is an easy basic recipe for a vegetable beef soup.

1 lb of lean ground beef, browned and drained
1 qt. of beef broth
2 cans of stewed tomatoes, undrained
5 ounce can spicy V8 juice (regular would be fine, spicy is all I had. It really didn't add any spiciness to the soup)
Frozen veggies (I used a bag of frozen green beans, a bag of frozen corn, half a bag of frozen lima beans)
Season to taste (for us, all the soup needed was a little Italian Seasoning)

Combine all of these ingredients in the crockpot and simmer on low for a few hours. Put this on in the morning and it'll be ready by lunch time :) It makes about 10 servings of soup, so it's great for having leftovers on another day.

Today, I served the kids a bowl of soup along with some cheese toast triangles and a half a banana with Nutella spread on it.

Kid Rating: 4 Thumbs Up on the soup; 6 Thumbs on the banana with Nutella!
