This hearty soup is very filling with a variety of nutritious vegetables and tender chunks of beef. Mix up the vegetables by replacing with anything you have on hand. We love to use up the older vegetables from the back of the fridge and freeze leftovers for a quick and healthy go-to meal when short on time.
