Vegetable Soup

There is something so zen like to me about making any kind of soup. I really like cutting all the veggies and super love the smell of soup cooking on the stove.

My latest had the following in it:
  • Olive Oil (to saute in the beginning)
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 2 Leeks
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Large Carrots
  • 4 Ribs of Celery
  • 3 Yellow Potatoes
  • 1 Crown of Broccoli
  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus
  • Veggie - better then broth stock
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Sauteed the first 4 veggies and then added stock, simmered for about an hour, turned on very low and let it go for another hour. An hour before dinner, I turned it back up to a simmer and then added the potatoes and then 30 minutes later I added the broccoli and asparagus and cooked until soft (about 20 more minutes).

Serve with bread, biscuits or your favorite rolls (recipe in next post)

can i come over for dinner? please? aurora loves vegetable soup - it's the only way she'll eat her vegetables, if they're simmered in broth first, so we eat lots of soup, even though it's summer - but it's finally autumn-like here so we're planning on having soup daily! yum!
