It’s like fall in a bowl.
Everyone is talking about the entrance of fall and the exit of summer. Personally, I love summer time! Warm weather, long days, barbecues, trips to the pool, I could go on and on. Even though summer is my jam there are things that I do appreciate about the fall. One of them being, soup.
A nice hot bowl of soup on a cold day really hits the spot. It was a rainy day today. As a result I decided to embrace the coming of fall with a nice big batch of veggie beef soup. This soup is like fall in a bowl. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links which means if you buy something through my link, I may get a small share of the sale. I appreciate it!

Hearty Vegetable Beef Soup
2 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion
3 large carrots
2 large celery sticks
3 small sweet potatoes
4 small red potatoes
1 cup green beans
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cups thinly sliced kale
1 can organic diced tomatoes
1 can organic black beans drained or bean of choice
8 cups beef broth
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt, pepper and granulated garlic to taste
1. Start by cooking your ground beef. Season with salt and pepper.
2. While your beef is cooking you can cut your veggies.
3. Add carrots, celery and onions to a large pot with some olive oil. Allow veggies to sweat for a few minutes. Season with a dash of salt, pepper and granulated garlic powder.
4. You can now add your beef broth. I like to use this.
5. Bring broth up to a low boil and add your potatoes and green beans.
6. Cover and allow soup to simmer for about 15 minutes or until the vegetables become tender.
7. Last you will want to add your mushrooms, kale, cooked ground beef, diced tomatoes and beans of choice. I use black beans because that is what I had on hand.
8. Allow your soup to simmer covered for another 10 – 15 minutes until veggies are your desired texture.
9. I like to taste and add seasoning as I go. You can do a final taste test before serving to see if the soup needs any more seasoning.
10. Serve and enjoy.

My munchkin loved this soup! She can be a picky eater at times. Any time she is happy to eat the vegetables I consider it a win.
One of the best things about this soup is how it can be easily customized to your needs and preferences. Do you enjoy a nice bowl of hot soup on a cold day? What are your favorite fall foods and dishes?
