I enjoy having a big pot of soup cooking on the stove-top. It smells so good and I love coming home from work, heating up a couple of bowls of soup and having dinner ready in minutes. Generally soup is better the day after you make it anyway.

A typical question is, “What should I make for dinner?” When I looked in our refrigerator, I found uncooked hamburger, a bunch of fresh vegetables that needed to be used and a variety of beans in my pantry. That’s when I decided since these ingredients were at my fingertips, it’s soup time!Bingo! Good ole’ fashioned hearty bean and hamburger soup to the rescue!

Valentine Salad 4(I Heart Salad is always good paired with soup!)

In a skillet I browned 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger (I used 85% ground chuck). While the meat was browning, I poured the tomato juice into a stock pot and turned it on medium heat.

With the meat and juice heating up, I peeled, cleaned and chopped all the veggies that would go into the soup. Once the tomato juice came to a boil the vegetables were added. Next, I covered the pot with a lid and let the soup cook until the veggies were tender.

Once the veggies were tender I added the drained beans and hamburger. Finally, the soup simmered until we were ready for dinner. Within 45 minutes the hubby and I were enjoying this amazing pot of delicious, hot soup! It made plenty so we would be eating leftovers!

Beans are one of the most healthy and nutritious vegetables. A good source of protein, high in fiber, and low in fat and cholesterol. In addition, they are highly adaptable, go well with many ingredients and there are many different varieties to choose from.
