Meals from the Basket (Laura's Edition)

So I’m staring at my Bountiful Basket items and this soup sort of came to life as I went along.
Which is how I generally cook, anyway. =)

From the Basket: onion, squash, red peppers

Harvest Tomato Soup

  • 50/50 ratio of organic ground beef (Costco) & bulk pork sausage (home grown or buy quality) equaling 1½ lbs.
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped small
  • 1 onion, slice then quarter each slice
  • 2 red peppers, chop small
  • 2-3 squash, ½” slices and then quarter each slice
  • Rosemary, dried or fresh
  • Oregano, dried or fresh
  • Basil (I had some from the freezer that I grew this summer)
  • S & P to taste
  • 1 can beef stock
  • 1 quart canned pureed tomato (or 2 cans tomato sauce from the store)
Brown ground beef and sausage; leave somewhat chunky.  Before it’s completely brown, add in garlic, onions and peppers until softened.  Add squash in last; don’t overcook.  Add rosemary, oregano, basil and S&P.  Deglaze pan with beef stock.  Finally add tomato sauce.  Simmer until all flavors are incorporated.  Enjoy!
This is Natalie... I made Laura's soup and here is what my
husband's bowl looked like... :-)
