I debated for a very long time whether to post this recipe. I made this soup for the first time before this blog existed. I got the recipe off of 101cookbooks.com and it was perfect. I ate it all week for lunch and didn’t get sick of it one bit. Beyond its deliciousness, there are so many things that I love about this recipe. First, it doesn’t call for any stock (I have still yet to find a vegetable stock that my boyfriend and I both like) but it is still incredibly flavorful (usually I have to add a lot of additional seasoning to make water based soup taste). Second, it’s hearty, warming and healthy feeling when you eat it. Last, I have most of the ingredients on hand at all times, so it’s a great recipe to have for a day that I don’t feel like going to the store.
My collection of kitchen toys seems to have exploded over the past couple of months. I have definitely downgraded in terms of my kitchen itself since we moved to Calgary but I guess that being in the kitchen, experimenting with new tools and products makes me happy. I find myself buying things that ‘I’ve always wanted’ but also always thought was either a little excessive or something we should hold off on getting until we finally settle down. All of that’s gone out the window. Since we moved here, I have acquired a small food processor, juicer and last but not least, an ice cream maker!
