Beef and Vegetable Soup – Plus Greens For Extra Nutrition

Beef and vegetable soup is loaded with healthy root vegetables, plus some greens tossed in at the end for extra color and nutrition.

I have included instructions for cooking it 3 different ways: stovetop, slow cooker, and pressure cooker.

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 –  14 to 15-ounce cans of fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken or beef broth
