Warming My Soul

Growing up, my mother often tried out new casserole and soup recipes that she would test on the family. (Actually, sometimes I think they were recipes, and other times they were leftovers from the fridge thrown into a pot.) Nonetheless, I grew up delighting my taste buds to recipes that wafted through the house as they simmered from the stove top.

It wasn’t until recently when I was combing through my recipe box that I came across mom’s Hamburger Soup recipe. It’s kind of a “throw everything in a pot” recipe, but it certainly warms my soul on a cool winter evening with its mixture of hamburger, veggies and potatoes. The hubby even gave it two thumbs up when I made it for him the first time.

Hamburger Soup
2 pounds ground beef, browned
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped potatoes
1 cup chopped cabbage
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
¼ cup rice
3 teaspoons salt
¼ cup vinegar
Combine all the ingredients into a crockpot. Add about 1 cup water to the mixture – more if you like it more broth-based. Cook for at least four hours on low.
