There is something about the combo of this classic Vegetable Beef Soup and a deconstructed Wedge Salad that makes me all kinds of nostalgic. Neither of these recipes are particularly fancy. And you probably wouldn’t serve them to guests, but they are warm, comforting, and über tasty (like the best comfort food always is).
The biggest shortcut here? Frozen mixed veggies! They save you tons of chopping and cooking time on the soup—and bonus, they are mega affordable. You can grab a bag of organic frozen mixed veggies for less than $2. Steal.
