Recipe of the Week: Simple Soup
2 T. olive oil
1 lb. ground beef or bison (bison has more protein and less fat/oz.)
¼ cup chopped onion
1 small can stewed tomatoes
32 oz. low-fat beef broth
Fresh or frozen green beans
½ cup chopped celery
1 t. oregano
½ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
In soup kettle, heat oil and brown beef or bison. Add veggies, broth and seasonings. Bring to boil and then reduce to simmer. Cover and cook for several minutes until veggies are just cooked.
Chicken or turkey breast cut into small pieces and low-fat chicken broth can be used instead of beef. Or try ground chicken or turkey. Other options: sweet Italian turkey sausage, hot turkey sausage. For vegetarians: tofu and vegetable broth.
