"There is nothing like soup. It is by nature eccentric; no two are ever alike - unless of course you get your soup in a can."
I love making soup, it's such a satisfying process to take a few simple ingredients and end up with a hearty bowl full of warmth. I like using what I have on hand, this is why no two are ever alike! ;)
I made this Roasted Tomato Soup the other day using fresh tomatoes from my friend's greenhouse, frozen tomatoes from our garden, shallots and garlic from the Farmer's Market and served it with homemade Parmesan Thyme scones. This is my Dark Days Challenge meal for this week.
Then, a few days later, I had some spicy breakfast sausage to use up and some more shallots and garlic along with some kale from the Farmer's Market, so it became Sausage Potato soup with Kale. Yum!!
Finally, was a lovely vegetable soup with meatballs and pasta. This is one of those soups where you can use up whatever leftover vegetables you have in the fridge or, like I did, use some frozen mixed vegetables. I always keep good quality stock-in-a-box in the pantry this time of year for soup making. It has so much more flavor than canned broth and less sodium too. I also like to have my homemade meatballs in the freezer for quick and easy meals. I'll have to post the recipe for them, they are very versatile and can be used for everything from spaghetti to soup. As you can probably tell, the weather has finally cooled off here! LOL!!
I hope you get the chance to make some soup this week to warm someone's tummy and their heart, especially your own! :)
