This basic vegetable beef soup recipe starts out with a short, simple list of ingredients.
1 lb browned ground beef
2 lbs (2 pkgs of 16oz each) frozen mixed vegetables. (I used Bird's Eye Mixed vegetables)
1 large can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
1 container (32oz) Chicken Broth (I like Swanson because it has no MSG)
2 TBSP Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic Blend Seasoning
That's all it takes. Put it all together in a pot, and let simmer for a couple of hours, and it's ready to serve. You may be tempted to add salt, because MRS. DASH is salt-free, but don't. There is plenty salt from the canned tomatoes and chicken broth. As with all soup, in my opinion, it's even better the next day. All those flavors mingle together and marry overnight in the frig. How romantic.... :)
