Beef Vegetable Soup (Kreatosoupa me laxanika)

The weekend was absolutely lovely, sunny but cold.  Being outside in the cold weather  you needed to wear all!!! I mean all the accessories…gloves, hats, scarves, ear muffs. 🙂 Yesterday morning, I had already baked the Vanilla cake for dessert, but we wanted something to warm us up from the cold weather, and this soup was exactly what we needed.

This traditional greek soup is full of vegetables and beef for a hearty, delicious warm me up dish. 🙂  If you love soups and are not a meat eater just omit the meat and have a hearty hot vegetable soup. 🙂

Ingredients:

500 grams of Beef (cut into pieces)

1 Carrot diced

3 medium size Potatoes cubed

1 Red pepper sliced

1 Fresh Onion diced

Salt

Pepper

1/2 cup Olive Oil

1/2 cup small type Pasta

Preparation:

In a large pot add water and cover the meat and boil for 1/2 hour.  (this process tenderises the meat)

Once the meat has boiled add in the vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes.

Continue to add the fresh onions.

Add the olive oil, salt, pepper and boil for 1/2 hour.

I always like to add  some pasta into my soups, so this time I added 1/2 cup of this small tube pasta. 🙂   Boil for another 1/2 hr until pasta has cooked.

If you are not a meat eater just add water and the olive oil along with any other vegetables you enjoy eating and enjoy. 🙂  Serve into a lovely bowl and enjoy this delicious soup on a cold day 🙂

Kali Orexi!!! 🙂

      Thank you Karin!!! I hope you kept warm today with that rainy and cold weather….Today there was no natural light I had on the lights all day 🙁

      1. Yes, thank you 🙂 Bad weather will come tomorrow. Today it was very cold und quite windy, but sunny. But there is one small crumb of comfort: In less than four weeks days will become longer again. Juhu 🙂

  4. I was thinking the same thing, if I don’t have any meat available this would make a great meatless stew :):)
