Even though Autumn doesn’t actually begin until this weekend with the Autumnal Equinox on September 22, we’ve already experiencing temperature drops and shorter days. That, combined with an abundance of veggies from the garden has got me thinking about one of my favorite foods: SOUP!
I love that soup can be made with just about any vegetables. It can be a restorative healthy broth or a light appetizer. Add cream or cheese and use your immersion blender to make it a creamy, decadent dish. Generally, I don’t follow recipes. Usually, I make my Mom’s version of vegetable soup using cabbage, carrot, onion, spices and a can of stewed tomatoes. It’s simple but delicious! Tonight, though, I think I’ll be making a tomato soup using just tomatoes from our garden, garlic, and onion.
Feeling hungry for some soup inspiration of your own?
Stop into the library and check out one of our cookbooks to get started. One I like is Love soup : 160 all-new vegetarian recipes by Anna Thomas. I also get find inspiration from the Vegetarian Times’ website at: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/soups-and-stews/
So, go ahead, put some soup on, grab a throw and cozy up with a good book! The weather demands it!
