Easy Beef Vegetable and Rice Soup

Easy Beef Vegetable and Rice Soup

This soup is an easy to make wintertime favorite. If you keep both broth and cooked beef in the freezer you can whip up a batch of this rich satisfying soup in no time flat! I save the bits of meat from soup bones in the freezer just for this dish. Sometimes I have some extra browned ground beef frozen instead. I make it often for lunch when I’m working at home. It’s a pretty satisfying dinner soup too.

It’s also excellent made with a bit of sausage instead of the beef :-).

That looks so good. Healthy and quick. I bet you could even substitute chicken for the beef.
