Soup - Everything but the kitchen sink

Friday, September 30, 2011

When people hear that I follow a mostly (other than 1 meal a week) vegan diet, they often seem to think that I am deprived. Of course, those that have tasted my wife's cooking know differently. My journey has been so much easier and more pleasant because of her incredible cooking.

Here is the soup I've been enjoying this week. It tastes delicious and is chock-full of vegetables. She made a huge cauldron full of it, so I've had plenty around for a quick snack or meal. It's called Kitchen Soup, since she basically empties the kitchen of items that need to be used before they go bad.



A closer look.




Here are the ingredients.

Veggie Broth
Diced Tomatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Green Peas (frozen)
Zucchini
Garlic
Jalapenos
Celery
Carrots
Onion
Barley
Mixed Greens (spinach, mustard, collard)
Salt
Pepper
Oregano (dried)
Basil
Chives
Dill
Parsley
Cilantro

All the fresh herbs really give the soup a lot of flavor. Eating vegan and not in the least deprived.

    That's a great way to use up vegetables before they go bad! Why didn't I think of that?! Thanks for the tip!

    Your soup looks yummy! I don't think I could eat vegan, but I do wish and try to get my husband to stop using meat in so many dishes. I don't think it adds that much to spaghetti sauces and bean dishes. I'll keep working at it...maybe showing him your soup would be a step in the right direction!

    People say the same thing about my diet, but since it suits my body and seems to be giving me optimum health, I feel anything but deprived.

    Rock on!

    I also eat a mostly-vegan diet and am not deprived at all. The soup sounds nummy!
