{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} HAMBURGER VEGETABLE SOUP


Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Tips about hamburger vegetable soup:

·                             Use good quality hamburger, preferably grass-fed. For more information on why eat grass-fed meat check out this article .

·                             The herb marjoram has lost popularity in the states and that is completely baffling to me. Next to thyme, it one of the most versatile herbs around tasting wonderful with poultry, pork and beef.

·                             To cut down on cooking time use precooked brown rice. I used 1/2 of a bag of Trader Joe’s frozen precooked organic brown rice.

·                             Add the whole can of diced tomatoes including the juice.

·                             For even more healthy veggies add either a cut up zucchini or yellow crookneck squash.
