MMMMM....

Homemade veggie soup... takes some of the edge off of the dreary day.

I couldn't fit celery in the pot with all the other stuff and I am definitely missing the flavor but that is okay. It is more important that I used the veggies in the fridge before they were rotten :) .

I started with a bit of olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic chopped, and a medium onion. I added in some leftover chopped red onion, most of a head of cabbage, most of a head of cauliflower, most of a bag of carrot chips, and a half bag of frozen collard greens. Then I poured in some pearl barley and 5 cans of "Fit ~N~ Active" chicken broth. Black pepper, Mrs dash original, parsley, and Italian seasoning were added throughout the cooking process and now... it is just simmering away. There is definitely a lack of broth, normally I use 6 cans but I only had room for 5.

It came out pretty yummy but still, I'm missing the celery.


Now if I can just stop nibbling on it...

No celery salt/seed/flakes in the house?

Sounds awesome! I'm making chili this weekend. :)

Got your e-mail and I'll write back to you tonight if I don't see you online. :)

No, no celery seed, salt, or flakes. I still have to replace a lot of my seasonings from when we remodeled the kitchen. I have been using mostly spice mixes lately.

Hey... you forgot to email me :( ! Hope you had something really fun to do instead! :)

I LOVE home made veggie soup! Its honestly one of my favorite things to make, so comforting!!! The less broth, the better to me...I usually load it with rice or noodles a few HOURS before I eat it so they take over the bowl...may not be very good for me but hey its comfort food :)
