Hamburger soup

Today I’m going to keep it short and sweet and give you my recipe for Hamburger Soup

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil

1 lb extra lean ground beef

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped onion

6-8 cups beef broth ( depending if you like a chunkier soup or more liquid)

1- 28oz can diced tomatoes(don’t drain)

1-19 oz can black beans rinced and well drained

3 tbsp tomato pasta

2 tsp Italian seasoning

salt and pepper to taste

3 cups mixed frozen veggies ( I like the carrot, pea, corn mixture instead of the ones with brocoli and cauliflower)

In a medium to large soup pot add oil and heat on medium. Add in the ground beef, celery and onions, cook till ground beef is browned. Then add the remaining ingredients. Bring to boil then turn heat down and simmer 15-20 minutes.

This recipe makes quite a bit of soup so you can either half the recipe or have some containers to freeze leftovers for a busy day.

 

Eating more fish

I made delicious tuna burgers for lunch today. In fact they were so good I forgot to take a picture of them. I’ve been eating more fish since surgery since it really does go down smooth and doesn’t cause me to have an upset stomach. I still want to share the recipe with all of you and once I make them again I will post a picture.

Here’s what you need:

1(6 oz) can tuna drained

1/3 cup minced onion

1 medium carrots finely grated

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper

1/4 cup light mayo

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1 large egg

1 tsp dried dill weed

salt and pepper to taste

bun and whatever fixings you want for your burger

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. form into a mound and separate into 4 section and form patties. Optional refrigerate for 30 minutes to make them easier to handle. Cook in a non stick pan (optional spray with cooking spray or melted butter) on medium heat for 4 minutes per side. Place patty between bun dress as your preferences.

 

I actually can’t eat bread yet and just ate the patty it was delicious , fast to prepare and nutritious. This is my new type of fast food. Even takes less time then going to the local drive thru’s.

Hope you try these and enjoy them as much as my family did 🙂
