Recipe - Fat Flush Soup

I made a pot of this on Saturday and have been eating on it for lunch.  If you like dishes made with tomato's, and I do, then this is a very tasty, rich soup.

2 tsp. olive oil
1 1/4 lbs. lean ground beef, turkey or shredded chicken (I made it with ground beef)
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
8 oz. mushrooms, chopped
1 (14 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 (32 oz.) bottle reduced-sodium tomato or vegetable cocktail juice
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice ( I used bottled)
1 (14 oz.) can beans, rinsed and drained
1 Tbs. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. cayenne, or to taste
1/4 cup each fresh cilantro and parsley, chopped.
In a stockpot, heat olive oil over medium-high setting.  Saute meat/poultry until cooked through, about 5 minutes.  Drain and set aside.  
Saute onion, garlic, peppers and mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in remaining ingredients, except cilantro and parsley.  Cover and simmer 20 minutes.  Stir in cilantro and parsley.  Cover, simmer 10 minutes longer.  
Store soup in refrigerator up to 5 days.  Freezes well.
Makes 16 cups. 1 serving = 3 cups

I am going to make some of this soup and bring it to work.
I could not find any marbles,so I had Lil T help me put 20 rocks into a jar. I am hoping to lose at least that but I need to do more but I did not want to set my goal to high and get discouraged.
This sounds like fun thanks for sharing

It sounds wonderful! It needs to cool off for me to eat soup though. :)

Susan, this looks fabulous, and will fit well into my lifestyle. I think my family will love it also. I like my soup like I like my coffee: anytime time of day OR day of the year! Yum. Sounds fantastic!
