Soup, anyone?

What to do when you're overwhelmed with vegetable? Soup! I am glad to report that, thanks to M.'s efforts, no old vegetable is lurking in our fridge. Yippee!

This is how it starts...

In a big pot, throw all your vegetables (anything goes, really). Pictured below are carrots, celery, onions, broccoli, chard stems, lots of garlic, a few bay leaves, a few peppercorns, and two icy blocks of homemade, concentrated chicken stock, and a bit of salt. Fill with enough water, and let cook until everything is very tender.

Purée, and voilà! A nice big pot of healthy soup. No fat, no starch, no fuss.

Enjoy! Posted by Picasa
