:: Whatever's in the Fridge soup? ::

I've been really inspired by Tracy Reifkind's Food for Thought blog and have been longing to make my own homemade soup. After borrowing Dyl's pressure cooker I made my first batch of chicken broth last night. Oh how delicious. This morning I put together the "whatever" soup below. Wow ... deliciousness!!!!

- whatever veggie is left in your fridge. In my case, I used 1 carrot 1/3 red peppper, 1/2 cabbage, 1 stalk of green onion
- 1/2 onion diced
- 3 garlic cloves diced
- 2 cups chicken broth (I used home-made chicken broth with fat removed)
- Bragg's seasonings
- Curry Powder
- Sea salt
- Olive oil

1. Heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pot
2. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onion translucent
3. Add the "whatever veges" and cook for a few minutes
4. Add the chicken broth and cook until veges soft

5. Add seasoning to taste
6. Run it through a blender until desired thickness
7. Return to pot and serve

*You can actually do this without cooking the veges in the pot if you have a powerful blender like vitamix blender.

Looks yummy!!

I think I would have left the vegies whole. I like the textures. But it's a great idea to run it through the blender just for variety.

I dont mind them whole either. But i think they freeze alot better when smooth. :)
