Sketch of Bob above the Hamburger Soup recipe.

HAMBURGER SOUP

2 c. diced onions
1 lb. ground round hamburger
1 c. diced carrots
1 c. diced celery
1 c. diced red pepper
1 c. diced green pepper
1 c. frozen peas
1/2-1 c. uncooked rice
salt and pepper to taste
8 c. beef broth
4 c. water
4 c. tomato juice (if you want a clear soup liquid, use water instead of tomato juice)

Saute the onion til it's clear. Saute hamburger til all of the pink is gone. Drain if desired. Bring the liquid to the boil and add all remaining ingredients. Simmer the soup for 20 minutes. Add whatever other vegetables or ingredients you may have on hand to the hamburger soup if desired (here is a chance to add any leftovers you may have in the refrigerator. Simply chop them up into bite-sized pieces and add them to the soup). The hamburger may also be formed into tiny balls if desired. Brown well and blot dry with a paper towel before adding to the hamburger soup.
(soup serves 8-10)
