  • 4-5 cans low sodium beef broth (I use water + beef base instead, you could also use vegetable stock)

  • Cook and drain ground beef seasoned with salt and pepper (you can use raw hamburger but I have noticed that it affects the texture of the meat).

    Loved this soup! Very hearty, you can basically throw in all the veggies you like…but the fresh green beans and zucchini are a MUST! I also chopped a whole onion and threw it in! Very good, and I froze half of it for later use!!!!
