Yum Soup

This recipe is courtesy of my first grader.  They made this as part of a social studies project.  Some of the students in her class brought something to add to the pot and since it's made by kids you know it's easy and for it's simplicity it is tasty!  I use my homecanned vegetables, juice and broth in ours.

Yum Soup

1 pound cooked ground beef, drained
1 can mixed vegetables, undrained (2 if you want more veggies, drain the second one)
2 cans beef broth or ~4 cups homemade beef broth
3 cups tomato juice
salt and pepper to taste
saltine crackers 

Throw in a pot, heat, and eat!

Here is a scan of the recipe she brought home.  Luckily she was able to give me more details and measurements. 


  1. Hi Jenny! Your soup would be a great cooking project for little ones! I plan to try it with my 2 granddaughters next time they visit. I love that this is a "one pot" meal which is perfect for time-crunched nights!

  2. Yes it is. My young one loves that she brought ME a recipe to try!
