Reviews for Hearty Hamburger Vegetable Soup
"easy to make and so delicious!"
"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!)"
"Made this according to the recipe. It was delicious. Recipe added to my box."
"My family loves this soup! Low fat, low sodium and amazing flavor!"
"This recipe is quite good. I have been making Hamburger soup since my 4 children were small. They are in there 40's now. From the garden I canned lots of vegs so soup was 2 lbs of meat, chopped onion and garlic, one quart each of green beans, carrotts and tomatoes. For liquid I've alway used water and red wine. A bag of shredded cabbage is a good addition along with plenty of salt and pepper and any fresh herbs I have on hand. very nourishing and not so heavy on the calories."
"Made this soup (well, a version of it) tonight! It was delicious! I added carrots, celery, and fresh diced tomatoes because I had that all on hand. I'm not a green bean fan, so didn't use those. Also, I subsituted 2c. of the beef broth for vegetable broth and mixed that with a 6oz can of tomato paste instead of using tomato sauce.This was by far the best soup I've ever made! Can't wait to make it again!"
