Hearty Vegetable Burger Soup

This is a great & delicious warm-you-up soup!

I made it the same day I saw it posted at 4 Little Fergusons.

Tonya sure knows how to 'suck me in' with her recipes.  I try a number of them and am always pleased, so if she says it's good,
I'm on it!

I had some leftover lean ground beef already in the fridge, and hubby and I had just been talking how we wanted to eat less meat, more veggies - and that soup would be a good option.

And there it was!  A simple soup with several options to make it our own.  I love adding mixed veggies to my soups, but I used some green beans that my hubby had taken time to process and freeze  during a busy day this past summer.

I LOOOOOOVE tomato soup and I already had some leftover in the fridge, and some chopped celery also. More reasons why I decided to make it...I got to use up some on-hand ingredients.

I added a couple of small potatoes and a little bit of corn.  Add carrots or any favorite veggies.  It's all gonna be good -
and good for you.

I did cut this recipe in half since there are only two of us, but if you need more, the recipe is perfect for a larger family.

I'm sure you'll love it too - it is VERY delicious.

I hope you enjoy it soon. Serve it with a salad, rolls or a sandwich and you're ready to chow down.


1 stick butter
(or Smart Balance)
1 c. flour
(I used a little less of white wheat)
1 qt. water, or more as it cooks
2# extra lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 potatoes, cubed
2 cans tomato soup
1 tsp. pepper
1 cup celery, chopped
2 c. frozen mixed veggies, or 1 c. corn & 1 c. green beans
1 cube beef bouillon
(I had reduced sodium on hand)

In a saucepan, melt butter; add flour and stir to a smooth paste.  Add water, and heat until blended.

In a soup pot, brown the burger and drain. Add the flour mixture and remaining ingredients.  Simmer on low 2 - 4 hours.

I'm sure this would work nicely in a crockpot also!

  1. This looks amazing! I just love soup at this time of year!

  2. Yay! Thanks for sharing this! I will link up on my facebook page today. I love using white wheat, such a great healthy alternative to the white stuff. We can get it in bulk at our amish bulk food store for penny's on the dollar. Too bad you can't take that stuff back on the airplane! :)

  3. Thanks Tonya for linking this recipe up to your FB! Who says I can't take flour with me on the plane...I just may have to do that. =)

  4. YUM! I think I will just add a can of Diced Green chili's and enjoy a bowl!
