For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients...


1 lb 80/20 ground beef, browned and drained of fat
1 small onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 large stalks of celery sliced
2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 tsp finely ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large turnip, peeled and cubed
1 large parsnip, peeled and cubed
2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
2 large red potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 cans (14.5 oz each) beef broth
4 Tablespoons of tomato powder* (you can find this on Amazon)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
salt & pepper, to taste

*Tomato powder is something I always have in my arsenal of spices. It comes in handy when you do not have tomato soup or canned tomatoes for a recipe because you can use this instead. Trust will love it!


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

2. In a soup pot, over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef, onion, garlic, celery, seasoning salt and pepper until no longer pink. Break up meat in crumbles as it cooks. Drain and return to the soup pot.

3. On an oiled baking sheet add cut root vegetables and coat them with oil. Bake them for approximately 30 minutes or until soft. 

3. Add cooked root vegetable, beef broth, tomato powder, Worcestershire sauce, parsley and basil. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover with a lid and reduce heat to medium-low. Let simmer for at least 45 minutes for the flavors to combine. If you want a thicker soup, you take 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and three tablespoon of cold water mixed in a small bowl and slowly stir it into the soup for a thicker more stew like consistency.
