Angie's Favorite Veggie Beef Soup

I have been a single Mom for 17 years and because I had to work a lot, I tried to find recipes that the kids loved but that wouldn't take forever to make. I was also on a tight budget, so I tried to make the most of everything we could get. This is my daughter's favorite homemade soup. I encourage you to expand on it as you like, this was just my way of making it. Enjoy!

40 Min

Ingredients

1 can(s)
tomato juice or vegetable juice
1 c
peas (canned, or frozen) if using canned, just one can is fine
1 c
carrots (frozen) but canned is also fine, if i use canned i use 1 can of mixed peas and carrots (diced carrots are best)
2 c
corn (frozen or canned)
1-2 lb
ground beef, (or turkey for a lighter menu)
1 1/2 Tbsp
oregano, dried or fresh if you have it
1 Tbsp
cavender's greek season
2 tsp
salt and pepper (ea) optional to taste
1 tsp
sage leaves, fresh or dried
1 tsp
basil, dried or fresh
1/2 tsp
parsley
1/2
med. onion (or 1/2 tablespoon dried) optional to taste
2 Tbsp
garlic powder (1/2 tablespoon jarred, or about 2 cloves fresh)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
brown meat and onion together (if using a fresh onion). You can omit the meat for a vegetarian soup. Drain fat off if needed.
2
In large pot (4 qt or bigger if making more), pour in juice, veggies, and seasonings. I do this while browning meat. Cover and cook over a low heat. Stirring fequently. If using frozen veggies, I like to put them in the microwave for a few minutes to unfreeze them a little and speed up the cooking process.
3
When meat is fully cooked, add to soup mixture. Stir well. I don't usually measure the seasonings, I kinda go by look and taste so add what you like to your taste.
4
Let cook over low heat until veggies are hot. I like to serve this with cornbread or biscuts, but crackers are good too.
