  • 2 tablespoons healthy fat such as butter, lard, or ghee
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed (optional)
  • 1 28oz can diced tomatoes
  • 8 cups bone broth
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cup green beans and/or asparagus, cut into 1-1/2" pieces
  • 2 cups spinach packed
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • salt & pepper, to taste *


  • On medium-high heat, melt your choice of fat in a thick-bottom soup pot. 
  • Add onions and cook until translucent. Add ground beef and cook for approximately 10 minutes, breaking up the meat. 
  • Add celery seed, diced tomatoes, broth, and carrots and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 10 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  • Add bell peppers and green beans or asparagus and cook for another 5 minutes. 
  • Turn off heat, add spinach, garlic and check for salt and pepper. Adjust if necessary. Stir to combine well. 
  • Enjoy immediately but is also great for leftovers. Store in refrigerator up to 7 days.


  • Amount of salt will depend on the salt content of your broth and tomatoes. I would start with 2 teaspoons and work your way up.
