I always make sure I have the ingredients on hand to make a pot of this nourishing, comforting Vegetable Beef Soup! This soup is packed full of flavor, and thanks to a few shortcuts (hello, frozen veggies), it comes together in just a few minutes.
Combine this soup with some crusty bread and a wedge salad for a perfect nourishing meal. For me, there is something about this combo that makes me all kinds of nostalgic—it just feels cozy. Neither of these recipes are particularly fancy, and you probably wouldn’t serve them to guests. But they are warm, comforting, and über-tasty (like the best comfort food always is).
What kind of beef is in this soup?
To make things easy, we’re using ground beef here—it’s easy to source, affordable, and it helps you get nice beef flavor in each bite. If you prefer, you can use beef stew meat for meatier chunks.
