Hamburger & Cabbage Soup

I remember this soup fondly growing up. It’s perfect on those days where you need something warm and comforting, but don’t want to comprise on a cheat meal. Loaded with lots of veggies, this is a hearty meal for a chilly winter day.

  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 med onion, diced
  • 3 cups diced cabbage 
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped

  • 2 cups stock or water
  • 1 can beef consommé
  • 1 bay leaf
