Now that the dark nights are creeping in (clock change soon), starting to think of stews and soups. I've got a few bits and pieces of extra lamb in the freezer which will be ideal for this hearty soup.

Pressure Cooker Lamb and Vegetable Soup Recipe
Serves 4

1-1/2 pounds lamb shank or lamb chops (remove any bones)
16-18 ounces eggplant
14 ounces onion
10 ounces carrot
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
3 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 (16 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 cups water
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1.Brown in lamb, eggplant, carrot, onion and garlic in oil in the instant pot or skillet if you donít have the brown setting in your pressure cooker.
2.Add the cinnamon, tomatoes, water and lemon juice.
3.Cook 45 minutes, pressurized on the stew setting, following the directions for your pressure cooker or Instant Pot.
4.Serve with rice.

If you donít have a pressure cooker, you can still do this in a slow cooker, just takes longer.
Note: Allow extra time for cooker to drop pressure after cooking for safe opening.

This is great for using up the veg from the fridge, you can chop and change the veg etc to the ingredients you prefer.

Pauperís Soup

1 to 1-1/2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chilies (or Rotel)
16 oz. package frozen mixed vegetables
6-8 potatoes peeled and diced
1 small onion diced
6 beef bouillon cubes*
8 cups water*
salt and pepper to taste

Brown meat on stove top and drain grease. Combine all ingredients, heat over low for about an hour. Add salt and pepper to taste and voila- dinnerís served! Enjoy this low-cost meal, which makes enough to serve a family of four for dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day.
This can also be prepared for the crockpot. Simply brown the beef or turkey and combine all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Fresh ingredients can also be used if you have them, and are so delish!

** These can be substituted for 1 and a 1/2 pints of home made beef stock.
