Hearty Italian Vegetable Beef Soup is filled with chunks of ground beef, plenty of vegetables, and generous Italian spices. This soup is inspired by the Italian Vegetable Soup that has been a family favorite for over 15 years. Italian Vegetable Soup was actually the first recipe I posted on this blog almost 5 years ago.
My husband has been taking one version or another of this soup to work with him for lunch at least a couple times a week for years. The soup freezes beautifully and I almost always have a few servings tucked away for those lunches.
This Hearty Italian Vegetable Beef Soup is deliciously filling while remaining low in calories and completely grain-free. As an added benefit to anyone tackling a new way of eating this year, the soup falls under both Whole30 and Paleo diets.
My husband Sean is kicking off the year with a month of very clean Whole30 eating. (That might have something to do with all the fudge recipes filled our house through the past month.) For what it’s worth, we are all eating the same foods Sean is, I’m just adding in a handful of Fritos on my salads, wrapping my eggs in a tortilla, and heaven forbid I ever fully give up chocolate.
Kitchen Tip: I used this pot to make this recipe.
