Throw & Go Vegetable Beef Soup
Well, Tuesday was one of those days. I'd had a doctor's appointment, hit up Costco, the bank and Target, washed some laundry, took care of a toddler, took the toddler to the library to get new books... And by dinner-time, I didn't have any meat thawed, and I really didn't feel like doing anything much. It was quite tempting to go through a drive-thru while out at the library!
But I knew that wasn't the best option for us. And so I convinced myself to come home and figure out something fast and easy with all my delicious THRIVE!
And I came up with this "Throw & Go Vegetable Beef Soup!" And I liked it! The THRIVE Ground Beef may be my new favorite item!!!
Seriously, I just threw a bunch of stuff in a pot, brought it to a boil, reduced to simmer and let it simmer 15 minutes. I thawed out some french bread I'd made and frozen earlier. And dinner was done! Here's how I did it (but just realize you can adapt to your likes and preferences with THRIVE Life!)
THROW AND GO VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons THRIVE Chopped Onion
1 clove garlic, minced
