This soup is light but filling it is truly a winner.
A look at the ingredients I used
lightly browning the meat
sauteing the onions, celery and garlic
add the tomatoes, carrots
add the drained beans, meat, dry & fresh herbs
add the liquid and simmer and aromatics
*You can use beef stock instead of the better than bouillon beef flavor which takes the place of stock but it has such flavor. I always have this in my pantry if I am out of broth or my stock it is good to have and it comes in other flavors, chicken and vegetable.
*The reason I did not use a lot of salt in this dish is because the better than bouillon beef flavor have enough salt, a little goes a long way.
Ps. use as many organic products as you can
