Hearty Stew

Nothing says comfort like a hearty stew. Mental health is just as important as physical health. Busy holiday seasons can often mean a change in diet (quick snacks and sugar tempations). Treat your body right and keep your immune system strong with a heart stew.This quick and simple soup recipe will help you use them up..and heat you up as we enter into winter!

1 lb grass fed ground beef
2- 32 oz containers of organic vegetable broth
2 tbsp butter
5 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
1/2 – 1 tsp italian seasoning (to taste)
1/4 – 1/2 tsp black pepper (to taste)
sea salt to taste (about 2 tsp)
2 tomatoes (preferably blanched and peeled – check notes below)
1 bunch spinach, coarsely chopped
3 large carrots,
1 cup frozen peas

Melt butter in a stockpot and add celery, onions, and ground beef.  When beef is browned through, add the vegetable broth, italian seasoning, black pepper, sea salt and tomatoes.  Let cook for about 10-15 minutes.  Add spinach.  Serve.

Additional notes/suggestions:
To blanch and peel tomatoes just boil a pot of water and drop the tomatoes in for a few minutes.  When you see the skins begin to split apart, remove them from the water.  Then they are very easy to peel.  Once peeled, cut the tomato in half and remove as many seeds as possible then chop.

This soup is even better re-heated the next day.
