Steps to make
Follow these easy steps to make hamburger soup.
- Brown ground beef, onions, and celery until completely cooked. (photo 1)
- Add tomato paste, beef broth, diced tomatoes, sliced carrots, cut green beans, cubed radishes, crushed garlic, bay leaf, and seasoned salt. (photo 2)
- Cook to a boil. Reduce heat and cook on low for 2 or more hours. (photo 3)
For low carb, use radishes instead of potatoes
Radishes? Ewe! Gross! Right? At-least that is what my husband says...
Radishes are actually the perfect low carb substitute for potatoes in a soup.
Why? Because when cooked for a long time the loose the red color of the skin, and have the same texture of a potato.
Radishes also absorb the flavors of the soup and taste similar to what a potato would taste like in a soup.
Honestly, after cooking the soup for 2 hours, you won't know the radishes are not potatoes! It is a brilliant switch! A ½ cup of radishes are about 12 calories and no fat with almost no carbs! Win! Win!
I even fooled my husband when I served him this low carb hamburger soup.
He claims he hates radishes, and he really thought he was eating potatoes in the soup. I showed him!
Can you freeze soup?
This hamburger soup freezes well. I often make a huge batch and freeze leftovers to pull out for another night.
Cool soup completely before freezing. Then store in an air tight container or freezer bag.

I like to use Pomi Chopped Tomatoes 26.46 Oz (Pack of 6)for my tomatoes. Pomi tomatoes have the most fresh garden flavor you can buy. They literally taste like you hand picked the tomatoes out of the garden and chopped them up to cook with.
I am addicted to them. They really help bring flavors to a dish, but you can add your favorite tomatoes and it will still be AMAZING!
Multi-task! You can make this soup even on a busy day!
Let the soup cook for about 2 hours while you are getting other things done and BAMB!! You will have an incredible low carb hamburger soup for dinner!
Tip: I like the carrots in my soup, but if you want to cut additional carbs, you can take those out.
Tip: For lower sodium in this recipe, use low sodium broth, low sodium canned tomatoes, low sodium tomato paste, and frozen green beans.

Is there something I can use instead of ketchup? Tomatoe paste?
I am sure tomato paste would work just as well Amy.
Katie, Great job! This looks like my Moms veggie soup. I have added to it over the years, my base is Zing Zang, V8 and beef broth. So yummy! Oh and don't forget the ground hot sausage.
Congrats on making the Buzz Feed list!! XO
This hamburger soup recipe has made me so hungry because it looks and sounds so good. I can't wait to try my hand at making it. I am really a horrible cook, but am hoping mine turns out as good as your photo looks.
Getting everything to make it tonight!! There used to be a restaurant that made it and I loved it!! Hope mine turns out just as good. Family has never had it before. Thank You!!
Thank you for the recipe. I left out the carrots and added raddishes to mine. I have it simmering right now. It looks and smells delicious!
I made it! Note: Added extra veggies and used bone broth no bay leaf but still awesome! It was a hit my family loved it!! Thanks for sharing!!
Can I replace ground meat with lentals
I am sure it would be good with lentils, but it will taste very different. It will resemble more of a vegetable soup.
Just made it. Love it
Added more radish which I forgot n sliced to it that's it
My 4 yr old son even loved it literally
That makes it a hit in my house
