Meat, Vegetable, and Tomato Soup

Meat, Veggie, and Tomato Soup

Makes ~ 3-4 Servings

This was SO delicious and filling! And you can add pretty much any veggie or meat you want. You just can't go wrong! You can find the original recipe here:

You Will Need:
2 Tbl Butter
2 Large Carrots (Chopped) 
1 Rib of Celery (Chopped)
1 Can of Corn (You don't have to use all of it. I used 1 corn on the cob.)
1 Potato (Chopped) 
2 Cloves of Garlic (Chopped) 
4 Ounces Mushrooms ~ Half a pack (Sliced)
2 Cp Stock (Chicken, Beef, or Veggie) 
1 Cp Crushed Tomatoes 
1/4 Cp Heavy Cream (I used 1/2 & 1/2 and a tsp of corn starch.) 
Meat of any kind! (I used a pack of chopped stewing lamb.) 
1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Cook your meat a bit first, especially if you used lamb or beef. Just throw it in a pan for a while with a bit of salt and pepper, until it's no longer "bleeding".
2. Melt butter in a large pot. Add carrots, celery, corn, potato, and garlic. Stir, cover, and cook for ~ 15 minutes on medium heat. Add the mushrooms and ~ 1tsp salt and cook for another 5 minutes. 
3. Add the italian seasoning, stock, meat, tomatoes, and another tsp of salt. Stir. Bring it to a simmer and add the cream and salt and pepper for taste if it needs it. 
4. Let it simmer for ~ 30 minutes then eat!
