"This is my favorite soup ever! It's what I make most often for myself and my daughter and it is soOo easy. During spring we use vegetables from the garden but the easiest way is just using regular canned produce. It's wonderful either way you choose."

  1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat, and stir in the ground beef. Cook until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain, and discard any excess grease.
  2. Stir in the potatoes, carrots, green beans, corn, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and water. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Thanks for this hearty, easy recipe. I made a few changes and it turned out great. First, I sauteed a chopped onion and minced garlic with the ground beef. I used fresh carrots and frozen veg instead of canned (better texture and WAY less sodium). I didn't peel the potatoes either. No need. I added some fresh basil and dried oregano and let it simmer for a little longer so the carrots would be tender. Next time I might cook the carrots with the beef to carmelize them (AWESOME flavour enhancer). I served the soup with a grating of mozzarella on top and thick slices of russian rye bread. Very filling!


Good soup..even better the next day! A very forgiving recipe...I can see how you can change it up per your taste at the time, or the ingredients you have on hand. I used ground turkey instead of beef, omitted the green beans, used fresh carrots, and added onions and garlic. Turned out great! thanks!


This is seriously delicious. All it is missing is onion and garlic for a little bit more flavour. I added one onion and three cloves of garlic to the meat
