Best Comfort Food presents a hot meal you can take to work or school.  Our recipes are quick, easy and less than 30 minutes to cook.  Cook our recipes the night before, refrigerate and reheat the next day.  Or, on the other hand, you can cook our meals and freeze them for next week’s lunch.  Our special today is Vegetable Beef Soup

Cooks tip – be sure to taste the soup before adding any salt – canned beef broth is particularly salty and you will probably not need to add more. Because it freezes well and candy quickly reheat it this is an excellent meal to make ahead.
