One of my biggest challenges has been vegies. I eat LOTS of vegies. A day without broccoli is like a day without sunshine. Only worse.
But, pureed broccoli? Not so much.
And, even though I can now chew well-done vegies, it can be very tedious trying to eat a whole bowl full.
Right now I'm kind of craving the vegie soup from Marie Callendar's. But, without all the salt and who-knows-what one gets in restaurant soups.
So, here it is: Vegetable Slop - er, Soup. I'm not saying it's all that pretty. But it is tasty, and it requires no chewing.
The recipe makes 2 small servings or 1 large.
About 6 ounces organic frozen green beans
About 1/2 cup organic canned tomatoes
About 1/4 cup frozen peas
A slice or two of onion, or a generous sprinkling of onion powder
Dash of garlic powder
Pinch of oregano
3/4 cup or so of organic vegie broth or water
Salt & pepper to taste
- Throw everything in a pan and cook til done.
- Blenderize with your stick blender.
- Serve in a pretty mug.
Add a pinch of capers, a couple of olives, or some fresh savory. Throw in a little spinach or any other vegies you have on hand.
