Hamburger Soup

Serves 8 | Prep time: 15 minutes | Total time: 35 minutes

Phase 1

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 cups beef broth, plus more as needed
  • 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/3 cups quick barley

 Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown the meat with the onion, celery, and garlic.
  2. Stir in the next 12 ingredients (everything except the barley). Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the barley, and simmer 10 minutes more.
  3. This makes a thick soup; if you’d like it to be more “soupy,” add 1 to 2 cups more broth and heat through. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed, and serve.
    1. For a complete grain serving on Phase 1, please serve with an additional 4 slices ( 1/2 slice per serving) of your favorite Phase 1 grain.
