Comforting Beef+Vegetable Soup

This pantry classic comes together easily and is enjoyed by everyone!


Every day when the days grow shorter, the winds turn cold and darkness comes early, I am happy - it's time to make soup!


  • 1 pound ground beef, bison, or turkey

  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 carrots, peeled & chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 14 oz. can tomatoes
