Hearty mince and veg soup

    1 hour 20 min

    This is a tasty and hearty soup that is almost a stew. It's a delicious combination of mince and loads of veg - sweetcorn, Savoy cabbage, butternut squash, mushrooms, carrots and tomato. It's easily seasoned with a taco seasoning sachet, available in most supermarkets. Discovery is a popular brand. Enjoy!

    1. Place carrots in a large, heavy pot, then layer mushrooms, sweetcorn, Savoy cabbage, butternut squash, tomatoes and water on top. Cover and bring to the boil over medium-high heat.
    2. While the soup is coming to the boil, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and stir in the mince and taco seasoning. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess fat. Add beef to the soup, and reduce heat to medium. Continue simmering until the carrots are tender, about 1 hour.

    The recipe was good, but next time I will chop up an onion and some garlic to add to it.  -  20 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe has all the things I like .....easy, healthy, inexpensive, can be served more than one day, and is delicious! I made two minor changes: I increased the water to 3/4 cup and used regular cabbage instead of savoy. I will make this recipe often!  -  02 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Just made this. My husband did not like the amount of carrots in the soup - I would have to agree - use less. Otherwise it was good. Especially loved the squash (I had some left over that was not used in another recipe) - it really added a good flavor. All in all, an excellent soup - don't think there will be a lot of liquid to this soup.  -  01 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
