I’m a soup lover and make a fresh batch most weeks so that I have it for lunches. This week I made a veggie beef soup. Soup is a great way for me to get in lots of veggies daily. Lots of veggies means lots of fibre.
Most ingredients are naturally gluten free. I used to add pearl/pot barley to this soup but barley is not gluten free so it just got eliminated. I do use Better than Bouillon stock which used to be labelled as gluten free, but that was removed because it is made in a facility that does have wheat stored there. So there is a chance it could be contaminated with gluten, so company does not guarantee it to be gluten free anymore. The beef one also has some yeast extract in it. I have tried it many times and it does not bother me, but you could use a gluten free broth if you want to.
- 150 gm extra lean ground beef
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 or 3 potatoes, diced small
- handful of chopped frozen celery
- handful of frozen beans
- handful of frozen pean
- some frozen onions
- dollop of ketchup and honey mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 to 7 cups of boiling water
I use extra lean ground beef from the local butcher, which I boil in the stock. If you prefer you can brown the beef off in a fry pan first. Mix the Bouillon into hot water to ensure it dissolves. Into the 6 to 7 cups of stock add all the other ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low heat and cook till beef is cooked and veggies are soft.
This soup portions out into storage jars for the fridge and it also freezes very well.
