Thyme comes through in this colorful soup that's chock-full of tender beef. You can use any combination of vegetables you have on hand," Heidee adds. "Leftovers work especially well."

  • 1 cup frozen cut green beans
  • 1 cup frozen sliced carrots
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking barley
  • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules
