Making soup-

Friday, January 11, 2013

I was cleaning out the frig yesterday, with the TV on in the kitchen--
A TV host was demonstrating how to save money---
She said, ""Open your frig and take out all those raw veggies that have been in there all week--put them in a pot, and make soup---""
I thought, "I can do that!"-
So after washing celery, carrots, peppers, onions, and whatnot, I had a kettle of soup cooking on the burner---
She went on to say, ""Add some beans, garlic, seasonings and whatever"----
And it is a great way to use up vegetables, and it smells so good, as it steams away--
The beans (well, mine are from a can)-but, they are so good for you----
No meat in this soup-(my choice)---but lotza beans-----and tomatoes---

Enjoy to-day Sparkly people!

    Re soup - these days I roast root veggies more often than not. I throw everything into a pan, parsnips, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, rutabaga, celeriac, even turnips, whatever's on hand (except white potatoes; I don't do white potatoes anymore, they don't like me, lol).

    We have them roast for that meal, but I always make sure I've loaded up the pan, because nothing makes great soup like roasted root vegetables!

    Soups on if there is a chicken that's been cooked. or leftover pork or beef
    I make stock in the crockpot through the night. It's a great humidifier.

    Gather up those vegetables and use your own stock

    You are right canned beans work well whatever you prefer.
    Another cold night so the crockpot will be on another night on low. The cold days of winter are useful so I set it outside in a big metal pan with locked lid to chill and then portion it for DH and I and freeze it.
    If we get company I use 2 or more of the containers that all have 2 cups of soup inside.
    Saves both time and money and it's a real convenience food. emoticon emoticon

    This is my Saturday morning routine before I buy fresh veggies . . . and gives me a pot of soup all week in the fridge for my suppers when I walk in the door!! Yay soup!! (Never make it the same way twice . . . but that's the basic recipe!)
