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.
