Cheeseburger Soup


  • Soup
  • 2 ¼ lbs ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups tomato puree
  • 2 ¼ cups beef broth
  • 1 ½ cups cashews, plain and unsalted (soaked in water for three hours to soften, recommended but optional if you have a powerful blender like a Vitamix)

  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp sea salt + plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • Optional Toppings
  • pickles, chopped
  • green onions, topped (green and white parts)


  • In a small bowl, cover the cashews with water and let sit for a minimum of 3 hours, to soften
  • Heat a large heavy-bottomed pot over low to medium heat. Add olive oil, onion, and ground beef.
  • Stir occasionally, breaking up the beef, and cook until the meat is no longer pink, and the onions are tender
  • Add garlic and cook a minute more
  • Add the tomato puree and increase the heat to medium
  • Drain the cashews
  • Add the beef broth, softened cashews, arrowroot flour, tomato paste, and salt to the blender, and puree until completely smooth.
  • Pour the puree into the pot, and bring to a boil. Once a boil is reached, turn off the heat, and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Serve with chopped picked and green onions
