Seriously y’all this is probably the best soup I have ever made. The story goes like this: one day I wanted soup. I didn’t have the ingredients for my normal chicken noodle – no chicken, no noodles…makes things impossible. So I just used what I had and threw some soup together. It was Uh-Maze-Ing. I wrote it down, so I wouldn’t forget. It’s been a few months since I whipped up this pot o’ deliciousness, but I thought I’d share:
Venison (or beef if you are fresh out o’ venison) Soup:
1. Brown 1 pound of ground venison (or beef) with 4 large, coarsely chopped garlic cloves
2. Add 2 quarts of broth or water with soup base & carrots (I slice up between 4 & 6 whole carrots…however much I feel like)…bring to a boil
3. Add peas (I use a single serving pea packet, but add whatever you feel like!), small shells (I use a half to 2/3 of a box), dried minced onion (probably a tablespoon or so), a can of great northern beans & fresh chopped parsley. Cook until pasta shells are done.
I wish I could share a picture with y’all, but it is going to be just about 90 degrees and humid today so there will be no soup in this house! I’ve also diced up a potato or two and added that, but usually not. Amounts are to taste & preference, but is is DELISH! I probably made this every other week over the winter. AND it was super easy to make with a newborn around!
Anyone have an easy, but non-spicy, go-to soup recipe that I can add to my collection for the fall?
