Recipes for Favourite Phase 2 Meals March 31, 2008

Hamburger/Tomatoe Soup………………………………………….Makes 4 Cups (2 servings )

200 g extra lean hamburger

1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes (no salt added)

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1 small shallot (minced)

1 tsp oregeno

1 tsp basil

1/4 tsp thyme

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste (optional)

1/4 C beef broth (reduced sodium)

fresh ground pepper

Fry diced shallots in 1/4 C beef broth until clear, add garlic and fry 5 minutes longer.

Add hamburger and fry until golden and cooked through (liquid should be all gone by this time) add can of diced tomatoes and 1/2 can of water. Add seasoning. Cook until liquid is evaporated to the desired thickness. Flavours will be blended the longer it cooks…it will become quite thick if left to cook until liquid is evaporated. (Tastes even better the next day heated up)

This recipe is very friendly for reduced salt….I add the desired salt when eating it at the table.
