Quickest hardy soup I've made

Quick slow beef roast at 8am ( 2 hours )
Chopped up some veggies and heated up some frozen bone broth
Ta Da, added some Nutribullet pureed veggie juice

Before I started this love affair with my kitchen, I never imagined making a hearty soup could be done in a few hours. Now that I always have homemade bone broth on hand, it's a matter of chopping some veggies, prepping some meat ( or use leftover meat ),  get a little creative and a soup is ready in a few hours instead of 10.

My oldest woke up this morning seeking a healing soup with "really tender beef" for his cough and cold.  It was early but I was glad to oblige. 
I downed 1/2 c of my newest kombucha brew  ( Ripe Daffoldil tea, hibiscus and chocolate mint leaves ) and went to work. I ran out and bought a couple pieces of meat just right for the occasion. I salt and peppered it and drizzled with some EVOO ( extra virgin olive oil ) and put it in the oven at 250F set for 2 hours. Then I  took out my frozen bone broth cubes and heated it up with some chopped veggies. I decided to steam the carrots instead of boiling it. I tested my new purchase, the Nutribullet, to create a healthy version of V8 juice. I put tomato, celery, garlic, parsley and water in the bullet and let it do its thing. It turned out ok.  Once the meat is ready and sliced, I simmered it with the veggies in the broth for 5 more mins to make sure the meat is "really tender". Then,  I turned off the heat and waited a bit before adding my "V8" concoction. I didn't want to kill of all the raw goodness right away.
