The directions for this soup was given to me by a good friend, who was a cook on fishing boats in British Columbia. He is extremely conscious about health and good for you,food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Precook meat in microwavable dish for approximately 10 minutes on medium power.
  2. Put it and all remaining ingredients in 5 quart crock pot.
  3. Stir to mix all ingredients.
  4. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
  5. NOTE: I slightly precook all ingredients in my microwave to speed up the cooking time, as I like this soup for lunch. As for freezing, it never lasts long enough around here. I see no problem in freezing though, as all ingredients are freezable.

Loved it! Was looking to do something with a lb. of burger that I had, so I wasn't prepared with all the ingredients. Used petite diced tomatoes instead of whole; northern beans inst of pinto; no celery, 1 shredded carrot, less mushrooms, whole wheat macaroni instead of fusilli. Otherwise, stuck to the recipe!
