Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Peel and chop the vegetables finely.
  2. Fry onions and garlic soft on medium heat in a generous amount of oil or butter in a pan with a thick bottom. Use half butter and half oil for an even nicer flavor.
  3. Crumble the ground beef into the pan and brown while stirring until meat and onions have turned a nice color.
  4. Lower the heat to medium and add the bell pepper and celery root or rutabaga and all spices. Stir and add the tomatoes and about two cups of water.
  5. Increase the heat and bring the soup to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Add more water and some vinegar before serving.
  7. Serve with finely chopped parsley and dollop of sour cream or mayonnaise.

Tips

This soup is best with lamb, which is more flavorful than beef, but you can use any ground meat you like. Try ground chicken or turkey for a milder taste. Make the soup a day ahead before enjoying it – almost all soups taste their best after a day or two!

    Sounds delicious and will be trying this week - but I think you've omitted the red bell peppers from the list of ingredients.

    I'm very excited to try this recipe, but I'm wondering if you could provide directions how to make it in a slow cooker? It would save me a lot of time if I could just put it all in a crock pot before I leave to work and then have it ready to eat when I come home.

    What is the calorie per serving?

    This looks good, but are you guys ever going to ACTUALLY put all the nutritional information? Great, 12g of carbs, but I still need to know how many calories. This is pretty basic stuff here and makes me not want to look at any of your recipes anymore. Even just the calorie count, grams of fat, protein, and carbs would be much better than this percentage stuff you have going. Fiber content would be nice to know, as well. This is so frustrating with your recipes.

  6. Hi Luci!

    Sorry but we don't want to promote to much "counting" that's why we only have the carbs in gram.

    But If you feel that this is important to you then use the formula below to calculate, a bit complicated though. ;-)

    (%PROTEIN / %CARB) * gram_CARB = gram_PROTEIN
    (%FAT / %CARB) * 4/9 * gram_CARB = gram_FAT

    gram_CARB * 4 + gram_PROTEIN*4 + gram_FAT*9 = CALORIES
