Hearty Tomato Soup (HG lib, SF, GF, LC)

Hearty Tomato Soup (HG, SF, GF, LC)This was one of those fabulous accidents again! haha! Don’t you just love it when that happens? I was trying to do a broth-y soup using diced tomatoes for a little flavor and didn’t look close enough at the can of “diced” tomatoes and out poured crushed tomatoes! So I quickly changed my idea for supper and YUMO! We both loved it! 🙂

I have been sick lately and was trying to come up with some broth-y soup that my hubby would still eat so I wouldn’t have to make 2 separate dinners tonight 🙂 So it’s not as much work as I usually put in to my soup too! Easy peasy is ALWAYS a good thing! Enjoy!

~Have two things on stove at same time:

1. Into pot with lid on stove on high:
8 cups water
1 lg can (1lb/ 2.84L) Crushed tomatoes

2. Into Hot frying pan, till browned:
1 Tbsp butter
1 Lb ground Beef
1 tsp salt sprinkled on top

~While those are cooking away, into my handy Kitchen Aid chopper, chopped fine and add to meat:

Pardon the state of my chopper, I never remember to take a picture before using it! :)

4 cloves garlic
1 cup carrots
2 onions

~on cutting board with knife, add to pot:
1/2 cauliflower, coarsly chopped small
2 stalks celery, diced

~Add rest of ingredients to pot:
1 small can Green Chiles, (114 ml) chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2-1 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

~Once meat is browned, scoop into pot, place lid on and simmer for 25 mins. Serve with grated cheese, my favorite is Mozza, my hubby prefers cheddar, so we usually have both on the table 

~TIP: Browning meat is an important trick to good soup. The whole idea of browning is to leave the meat on the pan without stirring it till it actually browns on the bottom, like how you love your steak, that browned stuff gives a whole lotta yummy flavor! So just be patient, fry on high for several minutes, check along an edge to see if it’s started to brown before stirring it all together 🙂
