Super Easy Homemade Vegetable Soup

Super Easy Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup

Just add to the slow cooker:
1/2 lb lean ground beef , browned and drained
1/2 onion ,chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables ( i microwave 2  minutes to thaw)
2-  14.5 oz cans of tomatoes. I usually use 1 can whole and 1 can diced. I break the whole tomatoes        up right in the pot.
1/2 small can tomato sauce
4 beef bullion cubes( just throw in the pot)
1- can chicken broth
Pepper to taste. Doesn't really need salt. There is enough sodium in the canned foods and bullion.

Cook in slow cooker on high for about3-4 hours.
After cooling i measure into 1 cup servings and freeze. When frozen I usually pop out if the containers and drop into a gallon freezer bag. I then can enjoy as I wish without getting tired of it.
When ready to eat the frozen soup i place 1 serving in a bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and/or break up any still frozen. Microwave 2 more minutes.

So good on a cold day plus is a low calorie lunch. I count it as about 2 Weight Watcher points per serving. The only things that would count as points is the corn in the mixed vegs and the ground beef and remember it is http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/200915963063?lpid=82 1/2 pound to the whole recipe and a lot less than a 1/2 cup serving of corn,
