In an effort to use up the vegetables in the fridge I decided to make soup. It turned out better than expected. Nice and creamy - thanks to the immersion blender - and the wild rice and barely made it filling.
I'm calling this Kitchen Sink Soup. It's an adlibbed recipe, but here are the basics. You need a good broth or stock, a starch like pasta, rice, beans, barley or couscous, then some veggies and seasonings. Boil for a while, blend a little and stir. Here's what went into my version:
Butternut squash, cubed (which completely disintegrated making the broth richer)
Red pepper, chopped
For broth I used chicken stock and for seasonings I used bay, thyme, tarragon and marjoram.
Have you ever made a delicious unplanned soup? What did you put in it?
