Fall Hamburger Soup

I love soup season! This is one of my favorites.


2 lbs hamburger
1 can tomatoes
2 Quarts water
3 cups diced potatoes
3 medium carrots diced
2 Tbs. parsley
3/4 cups celery
1 Tbs sugar
1 large onions
2 Tbs. green pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Worcestershire
6 whole allspice
2 tsp salt
1 tsp white pepper

Brown hamburger in large pot. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until vegetables are tender. Serve and enjoy!

Why the white pepper? According to A black peppercorn is picked when still green and dried in the sun until it turns black. A white peppercorn ripens fully on the vine before it is picked. Black pepper has a slightly hotter flavor and aroma. As with any spice, if you grind the pepper as you use it, it will have lots more flavor than if it was ground in a factory months ago and sat on the shelves in the grocery store before it sat on your shelf. So the question of how much to use is very much a matter of personal preference.


  1. I don't love cooked carrots, but everything else sounds delicious!

  2. This soup sounds so wonderful...I've been in such a soup mood, even though its still pushing 90 degrees! I love your new background!

  3. I love soup season too!!! Yours sounds so comforting. Thanks for sharing Kasha.

  4. Soup season in Florida lasts about 3 days. We have to crank up the air conditioner ;-)

    BTW I make a mean Kale soup.
