Hamburger Soup


Hamburger soup is my go-to comfort food because it’s so customizable. You can toss in whatever veggies you have on hand, like zucchini, green beans, corn, or mushrooms, making it a healthy choice with lots of flavor. It’s meaty and hearty and just hits the spot every time.

You’ll need ground beef, plenty of veggies, tomato juice, and herbs to whip up a batch. It’s basically a soup version of a clean-out-the-fridge meal. Serve it with some crusty bread or a grilled cheese sandwich for a satisfying meal.


  • 1lb ground beef, browned
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 large can tomato juice
  • 1 tsp kitchen bouquet
  • 1 cup diced or grated carrots
  • 1 cup cubed potato
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/8 tsp basil


  1. Brow ground beef
  2. Add remaining ingredients
  3. Heat to boil, reduce heat & simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes & carrots are tender.
  4. May need to add tomato juice or water if needed.
