Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Hamburger Vegetable Soup is another one of those recipes that makes me think of home. As in, my Michigan home of Decatur. My parents have a number of staple soups they like to make. They originally got this Hamburger Vegetable Soup from my aunt. They enjoy it right away, freeze it to enjoy later, give it away to people around town, and sometimes they even make it for the soup suppers that benefit the Human Services food pantry in their small town. But my favorite was when I lived close enough for them to donate some to ME. Now that I’m over 1,000 miles away I gotta make the stuff myself. *sigh* But that’s good news for you because I was able to get it out on the internet for you to try!

Kitchen Tools Needed for Hamburger Vegetable Soup:

What’s really great about this Hamburger Vegetable Soup is it’s customizeable. Don’t like lima beans? Don’t add lima beans. Want more peas than the recipe calls for? Go for it. As long as the tomato base, hamburger, and seasonings are there, it will be tasty. Rudy doesn’t care for large chunks of tomatoes in his soup so he just leaves them for me. If you don’t like them either you could smoosh them up a bit. I wouldn’t use diced tomatoes as a substitute though because I don’t think they taste the same. (I love big chunks of tomatoes and if you do too, you should check out my Chicken Paprikas recipe.)

I hope you love this Hamburger Vegetable Soup as much as my family and I do! Come back and let me know what you added to yours!
