I just updated the photo from this very popular post. In fact this has been one of my top two or three pinned posts over the past few years, so I thought it was time for a photo update. Notice the difference in picture quality. I learned a few simple tips from reading Tasty Food Photography. See the ad in my side bar, which is an affiliate link. It is expensive, but worth every penny when you see your food photo quality improve and consequently more traffic to your site.
My husband and I ate in a small country restaurant a few years ago and I had the most amazing ground beef and vegetable soup. I was so in love with my new favorite soup that I came home and created this soup recipe.
This soup is so easy to make and delicious too. You could substitute your favorite vegetables or use whatever you have on hand. Canned corn and green beans work well in this soup as well as fresh vegetables from the garden.
1 lb. ground beef
1 onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes or 2 cups diced fresh tomatoes (include any juice)
1 T. beef base or 3 cubes beef bouillon
16 oz. frozen mixed vegetables
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. or more creole seasoning
2 bay leaves
5 to 6 cups water
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1. Brown ground beef, onion, and garlic in a large pot. If you use a leaner beef, you won't have much excess grease. If you need to drain off excess grease, drain before moving on.
2. Add the remaining ingredients.
3. Bring to a low boil, then simmer on low for about 30 minutes.
4. Remove bay leaves before serving.
