Hearty Hamburger Vegetable Soup Recipe

Oregano really shines in this hearty soup from field editor Traci K Wynne, Denver, Pennsylvania. “It smells delicious while it’s cooking and makes a great lunch or dinner. You could use lima beans instead of the green beans.”

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2015

"I really wanted to love this soup, as so many other reviewers did. It was a snowy cold day here in Colorado and I was excited to try this recipe. We made as directed, but added some sliced zucchini. Neither my husband nor I raved, and I fear we now have a very large pot of soup left over (will freeze for another day.) Perhaps if I doubled the meat as someone else mentioned, or added some sliced sausages, it would have had a little more zip. It did make a large batch and was hearty, just not our favorite."

"Comfort food at its best! I never use the green pepper and always go on the garlic, so good!"

"My whole family enjoyed this soup. We substituted the green beans for peas because that's what we had on hand, and I doubled the meat and onions (by accident, but it was wonderful and made it more like a stew consistency!)"
