Budget-Friendly Beef and Vegetable Noodle Soup


  • Leftover ground beef (about 1/2 pound)

  • 2 cans of vegetable soup
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: additional vegetables or leftover items from other meals


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • If your leftover ground beef is not already cooked, brown it in a skillet over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain excess fat and set aside.
    • Cook the egg noodles according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Sauté Aromatics:
    • In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onion, carrots, and celery. SautĂ© for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
    • Add minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Combine Ingredients:
    • Pour in the vegetable soup and beef broth into the pot with the sautĂ©ed vegetables.
    • Add the cooked ground beef and cooked egg noodles to the pot.
    • Stir in dried thyme, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Adjust seasoning according to your taste.
  4. Simmer:
    • Bring the soup to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat. Let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Adjust Consistency and Seasoning:
    • If the soup seems too thick, you can add more beef broth or water to reach your desired consistency.
    • Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. You can add more thyme, Italian seasoning, salt, or pepper according to your preference.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the soup is heated through and seasoned to perfection, ladle it into bowls and serve hot.
    • Optionally, garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.

This hearty Beef and Vegetable Noodle Soup is not only delicious and comforting but also budget-friendly, making it a perfect meal idea for those looking to stretch their dollars without sacrificing flavor. Enjoy
