Hamburger Soup

altServes 6 – 8

1 lb hamburger
3 to 5 carrots, peeled and
4 to 6 potatoes, peeled and
3 to 5 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, peeled and chopped
¼ cup split red lentils
½ cup split pot barley
1 19 oz can diced tomatoes
2 10 oz cans consommé
2 10 oz cans water
1 tbsp garlic powder
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
Dash canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Fry hamburger with a dash of canola oil. Mix all remaining ingredients
together. Cook slowly, either in oven at 300º F for 3 hours, or
in a crock pot on low for 6 hours, stirring occasionally. To feed more

Notes: If soup is too salty, add a whole peeled potato — it will absorb
