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


  • 1Scramble cook the ground beef and onions until no longer pink. Drain off any fat.
  • 2Add V8 and beef broth, potatoes & carrots. Let this simmer until the potatoes and carrots are mostly tender.
  • 3Add
    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.
