What! There's no-one!
I went through my fridge this morning in my usual monthly purge and came across some still recognizable vegetables. 'Soup' ~ they screamed at me! Soup it was.
Presenting -- The vegetables that were crying 'SOUP' ~~~
Ok, so everyone has vegetables that have seen better days lurking in their refrigerator bins but, what the heck do you do with them after they reach this stage? If you are anything like me and are loth to throw anything that is still useable out, you will appreciate this little maneuver to avoid burning a $20 dollar bill !
Because after peeling and discarding what can't be used, these worn out veggies take on another appearance - a usable one.
And the parsnip that you'd likely throw out; take another look:under the skin is a parsnip begging not to be tossed, but chopped and added to a soup or stew.
So, lets get going here...
Here are my prepped, seen-better-days vegetables looking pretty good and ready for use.
Saute using spray vegetable oil, spices, garlic, onion and frozen tomato paste (more on that in a later blog).
My helpful husband pouring in the prepared broth; I prepare this in a different way as well, more in a later blog.
Here I've added slightly wilted onion greens
Presto! Vegetable Soup for dinner on a cold and snowy evening; in from work from the blast of winter!
