Vegetable Beef Soup
I know, I know. The crazy soup lady strikes again.

I probably have more soup recipes up my sleeve than any other type of meal. But for good reason! I make it a point to get bone broth in my family daily in the winter months and at least weekly during the rest of the year. I contribute regular bone broth to the reason we rarely get sick in our home.

Soup is also very budget friendly. Let’s face it. You can really over do your budget when you decide to eat clean. Well, until that money tree grows in our backyard, I really have to watch our pennies. You really *can* eat real food well, and stay within a budget with a good sized family. Grassfed beef is expensive, but when you use it in a soup it stretches to last meals and meals. Bone broth is loaded with protein rich gelatin so you are certain to feel satisfied.

This is another one of my staple large batch freezer soups I keep on hand. They make fast pull out lunches or dinners. Get it into the thermoses regularly for school or work and let me know how it goes!

  • 6 large carrots chopped
  • 6 celery stalks chopped
  • 8 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 TB organic tomato paste
  • 15 oz diced or stewed tomatoes 1 can
  • 4 quarts beef stock chicken stock would work if that is all you have
  • 1 cup organic long grain white rice if you are grain free just leave the rice out! It is just as good! You could add potatoes if you need some starch (try radishes if you are AIP!)
  • 1 lb box organic fresh spinach
  • 1 TB organic all purpose seasoning
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste


  • In a large stock pot sauté the onion, carrot, and celery in the butter with a few large pinches of sea salt to bring out their juices and sweeten for 10 or so minutes.
  • While the veggies sauté, brown the beef in a skillet with 1 TB all purpose season.
  • After the veggies sauté, add the garlic and tomato paste to the veggies and cook for a minute
  • Add the browned beef and stock and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer, add the rice and put a lid on the pot to cook the rice until tender. Keep the heat on low/simmer. Should take about 15 minutes.

    • This a huge batch. You can half it if you don’t want the leftovers. As much as I like to cook, I don’t like to do things over and over. I know we will go through it so I make big batches while I have the kitchen a mess already! This batch makes enough for dinner for myself, my husband, and the 2 big girls for one night and then 7 quarts leftover for the freezer stash.
    • Freeze up in single portions if you want. This soup packs up great in a thermos for school or work.
    • If you don’t have yourself a large stock pot – oh! You must treat yourself to one this year! I use it weekly – it makes making large batches of soup for the freezer so much faster and easier.
