A hearty soup that eats like a meal. Hamburger soup is loaded with veggies, nubby barley and chunks of beef. What's not to like?

Ingredients

  • vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ lb lean ground beef

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 4 carrots, chopped

  • 3 celery stalks, chopped

  • 1 bay leaf

  • ½ cup pearl or pot barley

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • salt and black pepper, to taste

  • 796-mL can whole tomatoes, with juice

  • 3 ½ cups beef stock

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 ½ cups tomato sauce

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce



This soup freezes like a dream! Let it cool after cooking and ladle into a freezer bag. To thaw it in time for dinner, simply place it in the fridge in the morning. Originally published in the Today’s Parent March + April 2017 issue. Photo by Erik Putz.
