For some reason, I’m not able to post to my “Recipes” page. Until I figure it out, I’ll post here on my regular blog.
So, it snowed last night…not enough to make it difficult to get out and about or drive on the streets. But enough to powder everything white…and it’s continued on and off throughout the day. I’ve been mainly working in the house all day, so I decided to go ahead and make this “Winter Soup” that I bought ingredients for yesterday. And it’s delicious. It’s the perfect soup for a cold, winter day…hence the name.
WINTER SOUP (courtesy of Sandra Stanley)
1 pound lean ground beef or bison (I used bison)
1 small onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups beef broth
24 ounces tomato juice
1 cup diced carrots
1-1/2 to 2 cups diced potatoes
1 teaspoon salt (you’ll need more, but add later to taste)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 bay leaf
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I used 1/4 t.)
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 cup uncooked pasta, small size (I didn’t use pasta)
8 ounces sour cream
Brown the beef/bison with the onion. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except the pasta and the sour cream. Cook approximately 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Add the pasta the last 5-10 minutes. Serve in soup bowls and stir in 1 Tablespoon of sour cream per serving.
