Comfort: Hamburg, Celery, Potato Soup

This soup is one that my mom used to make when I was a kid. Talk about "comfort food". And I have been needing this comfort (a lot going on). I think she used to make it when she had celery that needed used up quickly. That's the reason I made it.....

Plus, I got to use my new garlic slicer. OH MY GOODNESS!! This is a must have kitchen gadget.

Just look at the thin garlic slices you get. And they cook up gorgeous. I can see this being used as a pizza topping....are you with me?

I had a package of celery hearts that needed to be used quickly. That is what happens when you spend ten days in Arizona and leave food in the frig.....

Three main ingredients in this soup: hamburg, celery, and potatoes. How can something so simple taste so great? Make this on a cold winter's evening, and you will see what I'm talking about.

I hope you love this as much as I do.

Hamburg, Celery, Potato Soup

1 lb. hamburger, or ground beef of your choice
1/3 c. chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1 (32 oz.) carton vegetable broth
2 tsp. beef soup base
3 c. water
1 bunch sliced celery hearts (leaves included)
7 small potatoes, cubed
Sprinkle with white pepper to your liking

Brown ground beef, onion, and garlic together (drain if necessary). When ground beef is done browning, add Worcestershire sauce, vegetable broth, soup base, water, celery, potatoes, and white pepper. Bring to a boil, turn down to simmer and cover. Simmer for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
