    • For Italian Beef & Vegetable Soup: Stir about 5 cups base soup, 1 cup rinsed canned red kidney beans, 1 cup sliced zucchini, 1 cup cooked ditalini or orzo pasta and 1 teaspoon pesto in a 4-quart saucepot and cook until the zucchini is tender.  Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving.
    • For Asian Beef Dumpling Soup: Stir about 5 cups base soup, 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger root, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 cup thinly sliced baby bok choy and 8 frozen fully-cooked pork dumplings in a 4-quart saucepot and cook until the bok choy is tender and the dumplings are hot.
    • For Beef & Lentil Soup: Stir about 5 cups base soup, 1/2 cup dried lentils, rinsed, and 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 25 minutes or until the lentils are tender.  Stir in 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar before serving.
  • Step 1

    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 6-quart saucepot over high heat.  Season the beef as desired.  Add the beef in two batches and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.  Remove the beef from the saucepot.

  • Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the saucepot over medium-high heat.  Add the onions, celery, carrots and garlic and cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Add the broth to the saucepot and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.  Season to taste.  Enjoy the base soup as is or customize using one of the options in our tips section.
