The other day I remembered a great soup I use to make for my family. I had not made this soup in at least 20 years. I totally forgot how much we all enjoyed eating, North Country Vegetable Soup. Then, not sure why, I remembered this soup. Like my memory bank just opened up and out pops the memory of North Country Vegetable Soup. Now I began the quest of searching for the recipe. I knew where I had it but not sure if I would find the book I kept it in. Remember this was over 20 years ago.
Then Viola…I found the book!
Could not believe it…I still had it. And it was a real mess!
I loved this soup. The kids loved this soup. How or why did I stop making this soup? I have no answer to this question but now I am happy that North Country Vegetable Soup has returned to my dinner table, and it arrived just in time for winter.
So without further ado here is the recipe for this heart warming, tasty, filling, soup.
1 1/2 lbs boneless meat 2 cups water 1 can chick peas
l can condensend onion soup 1 tspn basil 1 can peas (optional)
1 can beef broth 1/4 tspn pepper
1 can tomato past carrots, celery
Cut up beef. In a kettle place beef, with soup, beef broth, tomato paste, water, basil, and pepper, heat till boil. Cover pot, then simmer for 1 hours and 45 minutes (till beef is tender)
Stir in peas carrots, celery and chick peas ( with liquid). Heat and cover for 15 minutes.
I like to eat this soup with a sprinkle of cheese and a slice of Pita bread.
SOOOOOOooooo GOOooood!!!!! Will be making another pot real soon.
I will rummage through my old recipe book to see what other recipes I had forgotten about.
