Preview: Spicy Hamburger Minestrone Soup is a can-opener soup. This version contains ground beef but you can leave it out for a vegetarian meal.
Preparing this recipe is going to require a can opener. When you need to throw supper together in a hurry but don’t feel like eating junk food or leftovers, consider this minestrone soup.
Yes, I know. Canned beans, canned vegetables, and condensed soups often contain too much sodium.
On the other hand, they usually have fewer calories and more nutrition than food from the local drive-thru.
Thanks to my friend Joan who gave me this recipe for Minestrone Soup with Ground Beef. It is a cool-weather staple at our house and the perfect candidate for my new “Super Simple Suppers” category.
What should I serve with this recipe?
Can I freeze Minestrone with Hamburger?
All the ingredients can be stored in the pantry and/or freezer, making it easy to keep on hand. If your family is small, you could eat it for days. Thankfully, it freezes well, so you have that option, too.
