Hamburger Vegetable Soup

I got this recipe over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook (I love that recipe blog!). It was super good and very hearty. 2 of the 3 kids liked it (visible vegetables and all) as well as me and the hubby. Nice.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb hamburger
5 small red potatoes, diced
3 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet
1 large can (46 oz) tomato juice
1, 10.5 oz can condensed beef broth
1/2 cup pearled barley or miniature pasta (like alphabet or mini stars)
1 can corn, undrained

In a large stock pot heat oil, add onions and cook stirring for about 4 minutes or until soft. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add hamburger and cook, breaking up until browned. Add the potatoes, carrots, celery, parsley, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, salt, Kitchen Bouquet, tomato juice, and beef broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. Add barley or pasta and the can of corn (undrained). Bring to a boil again and then simmer for about 20 minutes.
