Sopa a La Minuta means “Soup to the Minute” because it is a speedy and healthy soup to make.

Ingredients:

  • sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 medium organic yellow onion, diced
  • 1 medium organic red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 medium potatoes cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 TB. ground cumin (Foodie Fun Fact)*
  • 1 whole bay leaf

Vegetarian Option: replace the ground beef with portabella mushrooms and veggie broth

Foodie Fun Fact:  the magnesium and essential oils in cumin promotes a healthy digestion and provides relief to stomach-aches when dissolved in warm water, similar to peppermint steeped in hot water.

Directions:

In a large saucepan, season the beef with salt and pepper and brown completely. Remove from pan and pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat.

Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic to your saucepan. Cook over medium – high heat until softened about 3-4 minutes.

Add the broth, water, potato, cumin and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.

Add the prepared meat and cook an additional minute. Discard the bay leaf and adjust seasoning.

Optional Additions:  For a little heat, dice a red chilli pepper and add to the vegetables.
