Vegetable Beef Soup


Makes 1 serving (1 protein, 1 vegetable)


100 grams lean beef, cubed

Celery, cabbage or tomato, diced

2 cups beef or vegetable broth (or substitute 1 cup water for 1 cup broth)

1 tablespoon onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 bay leaf

1/8 teaspoon dried basil

1/8 teaspoon fresh or dried oregano

Pinch of thyme

Pinch of paprika

Pinch of chili powder

Salt and black pepper to taste


Combine onion, garlic and spices with beef broth. Add celery and cubed beef. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add tomatoes and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.



Tongs can be used to juice a lemon. Just place the lemon in between and press. Voila!


To remove the smell of garlic from your hands rub them on stainless steel.


To prevent water from boiling over rest a wooden spoon across the pot of boiling water
