Hamburger Soup

Winter has been so mild here in Houston, so any time the weather turns even slightly cold I like to grab the opportunity to make something warm and comforting and pretend it's actually winter out there.  I pretty much followed the pioneer woman's recipe for this soup but halved it, I added courgette to it and Randal said next time he would like to have corn included, but this was a really delicious warming soup on our semi cold day in Texas!

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
3 red potatoes, chopped
1 courgette, chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
3 cups beef broth
1 tsp worcester sauce
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

In a large pot brown the ground beef, drain, add in the onion and cook for a minute or two before adding in the garlic. 

Add in all the vegetables and cook for a few minutes, add in the tomato paste followed by the rest of the ingredients.

Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes.
