Basic Vegetable Beef Soup

Basic Vegetable Beef Soup
Courtesy of John & Kim

1 pound ground beef (we use 90/10)
1/2 large yellow onion, diced
2 cans corn
2 cans cut green beans
3 cans diced tomatoes
1 clove garlic
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon celery salt
salt & pepper

In large stock pot, brown ground beef with the onion and garlic... season with salt & pepper to begin with. If you don't use 90/10 beef - you may need to drain off the fat before moving to the next step. Add in the green beans with their juice, corn with the juice, and tomatoes with the juice... add bay leaves and celery salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes.

We used to serve this with homemade cornbread, but aren't able to eat that in combination with the soup anymore.

This is a major staple of my diet - it is comfort food that doesn't have a whole lot of calories... while still having a good protein count.
