Vegetable Beef Soup

Vegetables and cubed roast beef play happily together in this soup to warm the tummy.

Vegetable Beef Soup

When I was growing up, canned soup was a staple in our home. It was easy to open a can, pour it into a pot, and reheat. Yes, the convenience was awesome. It went to college with me. And into the newlywed days.

However, eventually I learned that homemade soup was almost as easy to make as opening a can. Soup making is not rocket science. I imagine folks have been making soup for as long as there have been pots to cook in.

It’s a great way to use up leftovers, eat more veggies, or stretch your budget and your groceries to go a little farther. Plus, if you make a big pot and freeze it into 2-cup containers, you’ve got your old-fashioned convenience without the new-fangled MSG, fake food, and other additives.

Vegetable Beef Soup and pot
This week’s rainy weather and my abundance of fresh produce, not to mention a roast that I forgot about and had to cook, resulted in this big batch of Vegetable Beef Soup. You can add rice or barley to it if you like, but my kids gobbled it down in its original, paleo-style form.

Yep, I made it to fit the Whole 30 because that’s how I roll for at least 8 more days. (You can read more about that here.)

    This sounds and looks yummy. I may have to give it a shot. I love homemade soup so much! I can’t stand the canned stuff anymore.

  2. Yum, your soup looks so good! I’m thinking of making a creamy cauliflower soup tomorrow. It is cool here but warm weather is just around the corner. I want to eat lots more soup before it gets hot here.

  3. This soup looks good! I love making homemade soup. To me, it is very relaxing.

  4. Wow, this sounds good! Soups taste best when it’s cold outside. I think I have to try this recipe soon :)

  5. We’ll have to try this soon! Do you have your own recipe for herbes de Provence? I looked up several and they were all slightly different.

      @Kristi, I don’t make my own. I was given a ginormous bottle at Christmas and then there was a package in the produce box recently. I can definitely share. ;)
