Yummy Vegetarian Soup
Last night I made a delicious vegetarian soup for dinner. The photo doesn't do it justice.
I run a Facebook produce swap group in my local area and was lucky enough to swap some of my citrus for some pumpkins and some kale.
I watered my garden and picked the produce I needed from my garden in the morning.
I then got a large container and put all the ingredients I needed for the recipe into that box. It made dinner time as simple as chopping and cooking and reduced my meal time cooking. I think I will use this system regularly.
As you can see I popped the recipe in too. I put it into a plastic sleeve to protect it.
I made changes to the recipe to make it suit our family.
I doubled the herbs
I used two litres of filtered water and 8 measured teaspoons of continental vegetable stock instead of the liquid stock.
That's about all I changed really.
Let me tell you, we will be eating this again. It was one of the best soups I have had.
I kept the leftover scraps as I can possibly make a Vegie stock out of these in a couple of days time and maybe freeze it.
