  • 1 pound lean ground beef (or ground venison or beef/venison mixture)
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (or garlic powder added with seasonings)
  • 4 small cubed potatoes
  • 1 package small carrots, or large carrots cut to same cube size as potatoes
  • 2/3 cup diced celery (can use less)
  • 1 can flavored diced tomatoes (we like the Onion/Garlic or the Chili)
  • 1/2 cup Lentils
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • Garlic powder to taste (or mince one clove and brown with onion)
  • Pepper to taste
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes or equivalent in granules or soup base
  • Water to cover



Step 1

Brown the onion (and garlic) in a soup pot, using very little oil/butter. Brown hamburger meat in same pot. Drain off excess fat. Add potatoes, carrots, celery, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil.

Add lentils, seasonings, bouillon, and water. Cover and simmer for 50 minutes – checking often and adding water as level lowers. For additional guests, just add a few more of your favorite ingredients, and for a touch of sweetness, add a can of whole kernel corn ten minutes before serving.

Ladle soup into bowls and sprinkle with grated sharp cheddar — or the cheese of your choice.
Freezing Directions:

Allow to cool. Freeze. To serve: Thaw. Reheat on stove, in microwave or in slow cooker.
