Veggie broth (from last soup I made), garlic, onions, cabbage, Yu choy, stewed tomatoes, red kidney beans, black beans and rice noodles because I wanted something different from the usual potatoes – it was an excellent choice.  Spices – Curry, smoked paprika, s & p, crushed chilies, and oregano.

Yummy in a bowl and even yummier in my tummy:

Soup is Ready!

I made this homemade soup which was perfect for the chilly day.  It hit the spot!


Onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, parsnip, cabbage, salt & pepper, curry, thyme, sage, oregano, liquid smoke and veggie broth.  So easy, and yet, so delish!  I was going to puree it, but couldn’t wait so ate a bowl as soon as it was ready to go.  🙂

Pureed Soup

Later on that evening, I pureed some then reheated and put in a mug and snuggled on the couch to enjoy.  The pic does not do it justice.



Thank God It’s Friday!!

I made a pot of homemade veggie soup last night.  I’m having some for lunch and will puree some later on, heat it up, put it in a thermos and take it on my travels tonight.

I juiced kale, carrots, 1 grannie smith apple, 1/2 a zucchini, 1/2 a medium-sized cabbage, 1 celery stalk.  I drank some of the juice…juiced more of the above ingredients and used that as my veggie stock.
