ABC Soup Recipe
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 quarts tomato juice
- 1 can (15 ounces) mixed vegetables, undrained
- 1 cup water
- 2 beef bouillon cubes
- 1 cup uncooked alphabet pasta
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1. In a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add tomato juice, vegetables, water and bouillon; bring to a boil. Add pasta. Cook, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper. Yield: 11 servings (2-3/4 quarts).
If you don't have small pasta on hand for ABC Soup, use quick-cooking barley or instant rice. Cook until tender. If you're out of bouillon cubes, 2 teaspoons of bouillon granules can be used instead.
