Sunday morning I got this mad craving for some vegetable beef soup.
Blame it on fall, or the onset of illness that has invaded our house, but I needed some comfort food STAT!
I wanted something easy that I could throw in the crockpot and let simmer all day, so I did a quick google search and this is what I came up with. Now if you came here looking for some homemade, all organic, I grew the vegetables in my back yard and slaughtered the free range, grass fed cow myself kinda recipe..... please leave now. You won't find that here today. (Or let's be honest, any day) Because I said I wanted something QUICK and EASY. I changed a few things based on the comments in the reviews section, so I will give it to you exactly how I made it. A few people also mentioned they substituted frozen or fresh in lieu of canned, so if that's more your style, go for it! I was super pleased with how this came out, it was delicious and will definitely be made again!
