Beefy Zucchini Soup

zucchini soup

The Fresh Zucchini Salsa just begs to be turned into soup. But you can use this technique any time you have cooked leftover vegetables, roasted peppers work, as do roasted roots! The addition of a few simple ingredients makes it hearty and filling in no time flat.  Feel free to substitute ground chicken and chicken broth, same dif.

Serving Size  4     Preparation Time 10 minutes

½ pound extra lean ground beef

2-3 cups Reserved Fresh Zucchini Salsa

1pint low sodium beef broth

Empty lean ground beef into a large skillet and brown until cooked through, about 6-8 minutes.  Drain off all fat.  (if you are really keen, you can remove even more fat by running it under hot water through a colander!) Stir in beef broth, reserved Fresh Zucchini Salsa and warm through.  Serve with whole grain bread and a nice big salad.

I love food, try to watch my weight, know more than I want to about healthy living (sometimes I wish I knew less so I wouldn’t feel so guilty when I stumble), am a daughter, sister, friend, mom and wife who worries and scurries the meals onto the table. It is for all these reasons that I completed my nutrition, RNCP designation, wrote my book, hosted my Food Network show, consult with food companies to urge them to get it right (or at least better), constantly write about it, research it, all of this so I can cut through the nutrition and food “news” clutter. Happy to share with friends!
