It's Raining...It's Pouring...Time for Soup!
By Sugar By Suzanne on January 16, 2013
It's raining...as in Biblical Proportions, here in the New River Valley! The weekend's awesome spring like weather is now lost in the memories of a weekend spent with my husband walking along the banks of the New River as we soaked up some Vitamin D and Alyson played with sticks (her favorite toy). Sigh.....
Wait, what am I doing poutin' because it's raining? January...long, slow, cold rain = SOUP DAY! Woohoo!!!! Yessssssss, I am bustin' out my slow cooker and throwin' some veggies in the pot for a nice bowl of Veggie Soup...Po' folk style!
Throw it in the pot - Vegetable Beef Soup
- In a large slow cooker add 1 lb browned, ground beef (seasoned to taste with salt and pepper)
- Add cups beef broth
- Add 8 oz Tomatoe Juice
- Dice/chop 3 cups of your favorite veggies (I'm more of "if it's left overs, throw it in" kinda girl) and add to the slow cooker
- Seasoning: 2 bay leaves, 1 clove garlic (mashed & finely chopped), 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce,
- 1 cup brown rice, uncooked - add to slow cooker in the last 30 minutes of cooking
Let everything just kinda hang out in the slow cooker for 3-4 hours on medium, adding the rice in the last 30 minutes of cooking.
Ladle into a bowl and top with your favorite cracker, cruton, or cheese....best when eaten while curled up in your favorite blanket and reading your favorite book.
It's back to the kitchen for me; lots of cakes to decorate for this weekend! Be sure to send me your note on the soup if you try it! firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep it Sweet!,
