Autumn is the perfect time for making this flavorsome soup. It is easy to make and good for you. This was one of the soups my dad would make when I was growing up and is still one of my favorite soups. The tantalizing aroma will warm up the house and bring a smile to the taste buds. Hearty and colorful, and titled accordingly, this is the “must make” soup recipe for Fall.
3 medium carrots, rinsed and chopped
1 medium onion, rinsed, peeled and chopped
5-6 medium Russet potatoes
3 celery stalks, rinsed, chopped
1 large can tomato juice
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3 Bay leaves
1 tsp. Seasoned Salt
In medium sized soup pan, add beef, chopped onions, chopped celery, potatoes and carrots. Add Seasoned Salt. Cook at low to medium heat, stirring occasionally until hamburger is fully cooked. Add can of diced tomatoes, including juice from the can. Add 2/3 can of tomato juice. Depending on consistency preference, the rest of juice can be added later. Add Bay leaves and stir until mixed well. Cover and allow simmering for up to 2 hours so the enticing flavor spreads throughout soup. This can serve up to 6. Add salt and pepper to taste for each bowl. Add some fresh baked bread or breadsticks or variety of crackers.
