Soup's On!

Cooler weather means soup, and lots of it!  This weekend I used up some groceries I didn't want to go to waste to make a HUGE pot of soup.  This is a VERY versatile recipe that you can tweak depending on your taste buds or whatever veggies you have left hanging around that you need to use up.

           Garbage Soup "Outline"
  • onions
  • fat of your choice: butter, EVOO, Earth Balance Buttery Spread (non-dairy)
  • broth of your choice: beef, chicken, or veggie
  • tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Veggies

This soup will take whatever you throw at it!  This time around I used diced potatoes, shredded cabbage, sliced carrots, a mix of minced and sliced onions, and organic crushed tomatoes with basil.  Next time I think I will try it with zucchini, squash, corn, and french style green beans added in!  You cook your onions until tender in the fat of your choice and then add in all other ingredients.  Add enough water to cover all ingredients by about 1"and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and add seasoning.  Simmer for approx 2 hours.  And Enjoy!

What is your favorite soup recipe?
