Have I ever mentioned how much I love soup?

Maybe it's because I grew up and still live in Minnesota and you need soup to keep warm through the winter. Especially days like today. It's drizzling freezing rain right now as I look out the window and it's about to turn into snow. We might even get up to two inches overnight.

I'm debating whether or not I want to venture out to do Zumba at the YMCA or stay inside my nice, warm house! Staying in sounds so nice, but I so badly need a work out. Such a decision!

This soup is defintely at the top of my favorites list of all the soups I've ever made.

And, I've made a lot. I have 50 soup recipes on the blog alone and that's not counting all the soups I've made before I started this blogging adventure!

It's hearty and filling and the mushrooms give it such a deep, delicious flavor! Not to mention, I loaded it with a TON of onion and garlic which always makes everything tasty!

My daughter is not a mushroom lover, but I picked them out of her bowl and she gobbled it right up!

This soup is also great when frozen for lunches or dinner. Store in single serving containers and take out of the freezer and transfer to the fridge the night before you want to eat it!

by Sheena
Ingredients (6 servings)
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1- 8 ounce package white mushrooms, stems removed and quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons white cooking wine
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper, as needed
Instructions
In a 5.5 quart saucepan, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Remove from pan and set aside.

Over medium heat, melt the butter in the saucepan. Add the onions and rosemary, then season with a little salt and pepper.

Saute for five minutes, then add the mushrooms and garlic. Continue to saute for another five minutes, then add the white cooking wine.

Cook for another 2-3 minutes, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.

Then add the ground beef and beef broth. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Add the orzo pasta and parsley and cook for eight minutes, until orzo is al dente.

Remove from heat, let sit for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.
