Vegetable Beef Soup

Melanie B


This is a great way to clean out left over veggies. My neighbor lady keeps a container for little dabs of veggies in her freezer. When it gets full, she makes soup. So, this is inspired by her. You could also do this in a crock pot. Play around with the flavors and veggies your family likes. Freezes well.

How to Make Vegetable Beef Soup


  1. Scramble cook the ground beef and onions until no longer pink. Drain off any fat.
  2. Add V8 and beef broth, potatoes & carrots. Let this simmer until the potatoes and carrots are mostly tender.
  3. Add
    mixed left over veggies (4-6 cups)
    2-3 bags of frozen mixed veggies
    1 can chopped stewed tomatoes
    1 can corn
    1 can green beans
    (or whatever veggies you want to add)
    1 can beans (I use rinsed kidney beans)
    salt and pepper to taste

    Sometimes I add a bit of oregano or thyme... whatever makes you happy.

    Sometimes I add a couple of bullion cubes or some Kitchen Bouquet if it isn't beefy enough.

    Kick it up with a bit of cayenne pepper or some hot sauce if you like.
