How wild! I was just about to create a topic on soup! But your soup looks far more beautiful and elegant and has a much tastier name than the one I was gonna post, Boni! Mine was to be called "Dumpster Soup"! LOL!!!
It's a soup idea I heard of on TV from "the cheapest family in America". When their freezer would become clogged with all kinds of stuff, they would empty it out, add some veggies to it, and see what happened. They admitted that usually the soup was good, but a few times the ingredients did "not" work together and had to be tossed out! Thankfully, mine turned out good!!!
It had the weirdest list of ingredients for a soup I had ever used! From the freezer: a pack of veggie bologna, humis and chili that had been in the freezer for months (and needed to be used pretty soon or tossed), froze greens, froze peas, fresh celery, fresh sweet potatoes, and a few other fresh ingredients I can't recall. (And yes, when it was all tossed in the pot it DID look like stuff thrown into a dumpster!) Sounds lousy, right? It turned out great! Tasted good!
But the trick with dumpster soup (I think) is to wait till "after" it's cooked to season it, because it's a mystery as to if it will come out tasting like a sweet soup or a hardy "meaty" soup. I thought with the sweet potatoes it would taste sweet and so even added a teaspoon of agave to a sample of it to see, but then could tell that was the wrong choice. It was not to be a sweet soup! So I added some nutritional yeast, pepper, etc.--wa lah! I now had a hearty tasting soup!
So Dumpster Soup turned out to be fun! Ya just never know what you will end up with!
But I definitly want to try Boni's soup recipe soon, too. I love the green aspect of it--full of anti-oxidents! And creamy--love a creamy soup in winter!!!
