Recipe for Love (Soup)

I have no idea why this is called Love Soup, but it sounds good to me. We still have a few cold days coming before summer hits, so I might just brown some ground beef and throw this all in the slow cooker.

  • 1 lb ground beef or stew meat
  • 1/3 cup beef bouillon granules
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried split peas
  • 1/2 cup dry lentils
  • 1/2 cup uncooked macaroni
  • 1/2 cup barley
  • 1/2 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • olive oil
  • 12 cups water

  • In large kettle, brown ground beef, or stew meat cut into bite-size pieces, and chopped onion in a little olive oil. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the macaroni to the kettle with the water. Let come to a boil and simmer 45 minutes. Add macaroni and simmer 15 minutes more. Serve with your favorite bread or rolls.


    1. Sounds like a great recipe not to mention the name! I love making soups in the winter. Good for suppers and lunches too. I never really follow a recipe though---just start throwing stuff into the pot! So far no complaints.

    2. I'll have to wait until I finish my detox diet to try this one!

    3. Lyn, I tend to toss in whatever's handy, too.

      Helen, are you seeing any results from the detox?

    4. I love anything in the slow cooker

    5. This sounds delicious! I may have to try.

    6. Oooh! Sounds yummy. I'm putting this on my lazy-day list. TY!
