A family favorite around my house is Hamburger Vegetable Soup. It has enough meat to keep the hubby happy and lots of vegetables (carrots, corn, green beans, peas, and celery). I love the recipe because I can throw it in the slow-cooker and have dinner on the table when the hubby gets home from work.


1 lb. of ground beef – browned

2 cups water

6 beef bouillon cubes

1 large can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes

1 small onion diced

1/2 cup diced celery

1 10oz package of frozen mixed vegetables

1 clove of garlic minced

1 teaspoon of oregano

1/8 teaspoon of pepper

Dissolve bouillon in water. Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.

The next time the weather is cold and rainy, mix up a batch of Hamburger Vegetable Soup and stay warm.
