Healthy Meals ~ Winter Soup ~ VEGETABLE BEEF

We've had several cold-snaps here in Texas already. It's what I call "soup weather." Makes you feel all warm inside. And I have a great, low fat recipe for vegetable beef soup that is super-simple! It uses ready-to-drink tomato juice as a base.

Ingredients
14.5 ounce can stewed tomatoes
14..5 ounce can green beans
8.5 oz can green peas
11 ounce can corn
14.5 ounce can carrots
1 pound lean ground beef (93/7)
46 ounce can of tomato juice
Italian seasoning (to taste. I just pour it in. I never measure. I'd guess 2 teaspoons minimum)

Preparation
Brown ground beef in a skillet. Drain the grease. Pour all ingredients into a stock pot and heat to boiling. Serve and enjoy! It's a hearty, filling, tasty, low fat soup.

This will serve at least 8 people and has approximately 240 calories per serving and approximately 8 grams of fat per serving (less if you buy lower fat ground beef). I hope you like it!
