    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Brown and drain your ground beef. Set it aside in a covered bowl until ready to use.
    2. 2
      Chop your onions, celery, and garlic finely.
    3. 3
      Slice your tomatoes discarding the end pieces.
    4. 4
      Lightly spray the bottom of a 5 quart (or larger) stewpot with cooking spray. Saute your onions, celery, and garlic until the celery is fork-tender.
    5. 5
      Add your chicken broth. If you prefer your soup with a thicker consistency, reduce the amount of chicken broth, or increase the amount of fire roasted tomatoes.
    6. 6
      Bring to a gentle boil, then add all other ingredients EXCEPT the ground beef. Continue to boil about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Reduce heat to simmer and add your browned ground beef. Omit the groud beef if you want a vegetarian soup.
    8. 8
      Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and more Italian Seasoning to suit your taste preferences.
    9. 9
      Serve with a variety of toppings on the side which your guests can add on their own. Shredded Italian cheeses, grated Parmesan Cheese, Chopped Spring Onions, and Seasoned Bread Crumbs work well.
    10. 10
      Your guests will think you were born in Sicily as they warm up their taste buds with a bowl of your soup.

      Excellent, flavourful, tomato soup. Lovely tomatoy flavour and the richness of the beef and seasonings works well together. I did have a few modifications... I was unable to find tinned fire-roasted tomatos and used home-made oven roasted tomatos which are simply tomatos sliced in half, tossed with olive oil and slow-roasted till tender, then skinned. Easy to make and standard on our salads! I also didn't drain the ground beef as we were using a leaner variety anyhow and the beef fat is part of what gives it such a lovely flavour. Other than that, we followed the recipe and did find it as stated - easy to prepare and outstanding flavour!

      This is a great soup. I had to make a few modifications but even with the modifications, it earns 5 stars. I cut this recipe in half. I could not find anything in the grocery store that said "fire roasted tomatoes". I did not have the official italian seasoning mix so I improvised and added 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil and a few shakes of fennel. The picture shows the soup topped with shaved parmesan reggiano cheese.

      I made this today for my weekly soup lunch at work, and it was GREAT! It smelled so good cooking. I couldn't find fire roasted tomatoes, so I had to get Itailian tomatoes. I did take the liberty to use have chicken broth and half tomato juice for a more "tomatoey" flavor. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe and helping me give my co-workers nice warm tummies.
