Chunky Beef Vegetable soup

Posted on: November 10, 2014

This is probably Denis’ favourite soup. He loves a hearty, chunky soup and this one fits the bill! On a cold fall night this is just what you need! Here’s how to do it, it’s easy, anyone can make soup!

Ingredients:

  • 10 cups beef broth ***
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 1 cup green beans, cut  (fresh, frozen or canned)
  • 1 cup corn (fresh, frozen or canned)
  • 1 cup spinach chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms (fresh or canned)
  • 1 can white kidney beans(canelli) rinsed and drained
  • 1 28 oz canned tomatoes, diced
  • 1-2 cups diced roast beef cooked
  • thyme, salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. I use a crock pot, but it can be done on the stove. Place all of your ingredients in a large crock pot. cook on high for 1 hour then lower to low for 4-5 hours. it will be thick, if you like it less filling, add more broth or water. Season to taste.
  2. Serve with a nice crusty bun for lunch or dinner! enjoy!

** For the broth, you can buy a beef broth that is gluten free or you can make your own. I boil a huge pot of water with beef ones in it, carrots, onions and any other vegetable in my fridge! don’t bother peeling or chopping, just throw it all in the large boil and let boil like crazy! Once you feel your broth is tasty and has good color, drain/strain out all the veggies and use as needed. I freeze mine so that I have it on hand!
