I love homemade soup.  Especially the ones that are easy but taste like they took forever.  lol  I make one with cannellini beans, veg broth, carrots and onion and garlic and chopped spinach at the end.  You can add ham too if you like.  This is so easy and never lasts long here.  You also add some thyme and a couple of shakes of Mortons natures seasoning. 

Does anyone have any good and easy soup recipes?  Thanks!   :)

This is definitely hearty enough to be a meal.


Cheeseburger Soup
1/2-1 pound of ground beef
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (optional)
3-4 cups chicken or beef broth
2-3 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon minced parsley
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk
8 ounces American cheese, cubed
1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
Brown the ground beef. Add the onion and cook until soft. Drain any fat off. Add the carrots, celery, and garlic and cook about 5-10 minutes, then add the broth, potatoes, and seasonings. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook 20 minutes or so. Timing's not essential as long as the vegetables are cooked!
Make a white sauce. Melt the butter, slowly add the flour, stirring constantly and cook 2 minutes over medium low heat. Slowly whisk in the milk, stirring constantly. Turn the heat up and simmer a few minutes until thick. Stir into the soup. Add the cheese and stir until melted. Just before serving, stir in the sour cream if using.
