Home Made Soup


It’s a mild 58 degrees in Dallas today, but they tell us a big “weather event” is on it’s way…time for soup and grilled cheese! Here is my easy vegetable beef soup with wild rice:

Brown about a pound of ground beef. Drain & set aside

Dice (really small pieces) 2 stalks of celery, 2 large carrots, 1/2  onion & 2 cloves of garlic, and saute in pan with olive oil, salt, pepper.

In a large soup pot, put browned beef, sautéed veggies, plus 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, 1 can of black-eyed peas, 1 can of black beans, & 1 can of shoe-peg corn.

Add 2 quarts of water.

add 1 box of Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice (with seasoning packet), and 2 heaping tablespoons of “Better than Bouillon” (beef flavor)

Bring to a boil, and then turn down to a simmer for 20 min.

Serve with grilled cheese (I’ll take mine… American cheese on rye)

Stay warm!
