Vegetable Soup

vegetable soup

Vegetable soup … one of those “warm and fuzzy” foods for me. It is all about the preparation, you know. First you shop for the vegetables (I cheat a bit – I buy the broth), then  you set aside time to make the soup. I don’t mind standing there chopping the vegetables up at all. I like small pieces … unlike my ex, who was an excellent cook, but was apt to toss the vegetables in whole (or at least in very large pieces!). So I stand there, chopping the carrots, celery, garlic, and potatoes.

Yes, I do add potatoes to my soup. I like them. Sometimes I add rice in their place, and sometimes I leave them out altogether. I might add other vegetables, too. Whatever is in my refrigerator, or whatever catches my eye at the grocery store. Oh … add onions to that list too! Lots of onions!

Put it all together and allow it to simmer until the vegetables are soft. The only spice I add is pepper, and not too much of that. While is it simmering, I can do whatever else needs to be done, knowing that at the end of the day I will have a lovely bowl of soup waiting for me!

Call it meditation, call it multi-tasking, call it whatever you want … it works for me!
