Healthy Hamburger Soup

Healthy Hamburger Soup

Not too long ago, this brothy pasta with chickpeas recipe popped up on my Instagram newsfeed and I knew I needed to make it. It was cozy and definitely hit the spot. Plus who doesn’t love a recipe made from pantry staples and in one pot? Anyways, after finishing up my first batch, I definitely wanted some more but I also wanted it to change it up a bit and make it even heartier and pack more goodness into it. So this is how this healthy hamburger soup came it be! 

This healthy hamburger soup is quite an adaptable recipe as you can add more or less vegetables, depending on what you have on hand. Things like frozen peas, carrot, etc would make a great addition to this soup. To give this soup a little bit more of a kick, I added a tbsp of gochujang to the soup. I love the sweet heat that the sauce adds to the soup but if you’re not a fan of spicy, feel free to omit that.

How To Make This Healthy Hamburger Soup

  • In a large pot or a Dutch oven, heat up your olive oil and then add in your onion, letting it sweat for a minute or two before adding your ground beef to brown. Make sure to break up the pieces of beef.
  • Let the onions cook with the beef for a minute before adding in your garlic, sweet potato, a pinch of salt, and chickpeas. Give it a stir before adding in your can of whole tomatoes.
  • Stir your soup while breaking up your tomatoes with your wooden spoon on the side of your pot, leave some large pieces if you prefer your tomatoes to be chunkier. Add in your water or broth and gochujang and let simmer for 7 minutes.
  • Next, stir in your pasta before letting the soup simmer for another 12-15 minutes.
  • Once your pasta and sweet potatoes are cooked through, take the soup off the heat and stir in your spinach.

Other vegetables/add ins for this hamburger soup

  • peas
  • corn
  • snow peas / sugar snap peas
  • bell peppers
  • zucchini
  • carrot
  • mix and match, change it up!

Make This Into a Meal Prep / Freezer Meal

  • If meal prepping, cook the pasta separately and add to the contain the day of eating (reheating it together). This way the pasta doesn’t absorb all the liquid and turn to mush.
  • To freeze this healthy hamburger soup for later, skip adding in the pasta and spinach. Add to the pot when you are reheating from frozen.
