Soup Report

The nor’easter was a little bit of a letdown. It didn’t even rain that hard. But my soup, that was a total win.

Here’s how to make the easiest, most delicious chilly-weather soup:

One plastic bottle of V8
One box organic vegetable broth
One V8 bottle full of water

That’s your broth.

Add garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper to taste.

From there what goes in is largely negotiable. The only part that’s not is the cabbage. Here’s what I used yesterday:

2C brown rice
1C dried navy beans
half a cabbage
5 lovely organic carrots
2 redskin potatoes
2 sweet onions

I cut the veggies into big chunks and threw it all in a the same time.

It took about two hours for the beans to cook through, which is your sign that the soup is done. By then the veggie flavor is well dispersed, and they haven’t liquified because they went in in big pieces.

Once you turn the heat off throw in some lemon juice to brighten things up. When serving, sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top of each bowl.

It’s so easy you could fall over and accidentally make this soup.
