How to Make Busy day soup
- Saute onions, in olive oil, until translucent( 4-5 min), add garlic and cook 30/40 seconds, then add ground beef. Cook until beef is no longer pink. Add herbs and salt and pepper.
- Add can of veggies,(except spinach, if using) with the liquid that it comes in. If your using fresh vegetables let simmer until cooked thru, but still has a little crunch. Your preference to how tender.
- If I am adding pasta or rice, I like to cook separately and add to soup before serving.
At the last minute add the spinach, let cook for about a minute more.
- Plate up in a nice bowl and add a little balsamic vinegar on top,
or a touch of EVOO. Enjoy!
