great way to make a lovely meal from the garden.

i just threw together:

potatoes, peeled, sliced
onion, peeled, sliced
swiss chard, rinsed and diced - remove stalk
garlic, minced


water
beef sausage (or use chicken broth or whatever makes you smile - i was in the mood for beef today)
spices - today i tossed in:

parsley
basil
mustard
curry
cilantro
cumin
pepper
sea salt

and half a stick of butter (or real cream if you have some - i'm out of cream right now - but as julia childs said - everything's better with butter! *grin*) if you're not into dairy - sub coconut milk. it's pretty tasty in potato soup! Smile i make this vegan when i know i have friends visiting who don't eat meat/dairy/etc or have those allergies.

simmer about 20 minutes.

serve.

this is such a forgiving concept - just take whatever veggies/meat base you like and simmer together with spice.

throw in some black beans, too for extra flavor and protein. (i've been serving bean dishes all week and i'm not in a bean mood right at the moment).

have some tomatoes or green peppers, toss them in.

really nothing is ever wrong in a veggie style soup.

would love to hear ya'll's combinations - might give more ideas to folks who are not usually soup makers. . (and this is an EASY way to use up leftovers into something 'new' and yummy!!!)

I'm definitely going to try this recipe, as soon as I have the requisite crops! Will probably add leeks....

Every week I clear my fridge of any veggies that are unused, and make a basic soup with them and divided into small quantities and freeze. I write the ingredients and the date on each package, then, when I feel like making soup, I sort through my packages and mix together anything I fancy at that time, and the herbs, etc, and away I go. that way I seldom waste anything and the veggies in the fridge are always fresh.

I do something similar with what my family calls Chinese Hash. Start with browned ground beef (or meat of your choice) Add celery, green peppers and onion. That is the base. Then add the handfull of green beans that are not enough for a meal, or the few stalks of chard you overpicked, some bak choy, a shredded carrot or some of those little bitty ones from thinings. Maybe an eggplant or squash. You get the idea, whatever is left over or not enough for a meal on its own.

Add soy sauce to taste and serve over rice.
