OMGreen Soup!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

This is winter's answer to the green smoothie:

The beauty is that you can use the greens you have on hand, and it's a great way to use up veggies that aren't quite at their freshest anymore. I made a big pot of it Sunday night using a bunch of kale, a bunch of chard (with stems) a few handfulls of spinach and a handful of parsley. It is SOOO good, I've had it at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Next time I will try caramelizing a few cloves of garlic along with the onions.

    Wow, green soup! Sounds like the kind of thing you'd see at a Halloween party! Ha ha!

But it sounds intriguing, especially since you said how good it is.

    My wife made up some soup the other day and the greens pretty much disappeared. So when I reheated it the next day, I added more chicken breast strips and lots of spinach. It is surprising how much greens cook down in dishes. But It was still much greener than the one she first made.
