One of our favorites on a chilly winter night and super easy!
Also fantastic with ground turkey or chicken.
1 lb hamburger, browned and crumbled(seasoned to your tastes, I use garlic powder and seasoning salt)
8 cups water(less if you like it more stew like, more for a thinner soup)
2 large stalks celery, chopped(with leaves gives a little more flavor)
2 large carrots, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 cup frozen corn kernels
2 cups diced peeled tomatoes
2-3 cups tomato sauce*
1 TB dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
*I find when using canned 1-15 oz can tomato sauce and 1-14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with juice, makes it just tomato-y enough, if using fresh tomatoes I would add the extra cup of sauce
Combine everything and allow to simmer for at least an hour until the veggies are tender.
This is great in the crock pot as well, just put it all in and turn it on and let it go.
