For Carole's ToT this week she asked us to find 10 Foods That Go Together. The first thing I thought of was a "recipe" for soup! Why not whip up a pot of for dinner with enough left over for lunch? Last night I did just that. Soup is not an exact science, which means I can toss in ingredients I have on hand, taste, and change as I go. The amounts may vary so listen to your own kitchen sense and pallet. My ten foods are as follows:
6.spinach or kale
7.sweet potato or butternut squash
8. tomato sauce (homemade roasted)
9. housemade sausage of choice (or leave out the meat altogether)
10. chicken stock or vegetable stock
This isn't a recipe, it's more a suggestion of ingredients that go together well and make up into a delicious soup.
My guess is most of you know how to make a pot of soup with basic ingredients found in almost any kitchen. I season, to taste, as I go and use ingredients on hand. We have a fridge full of veggies and most of the time we have a housemade sausage from Whole Foods in the freezer (as well as a a zipper bag of roasted tomato sauce).
I made this soup last night and we'll both have it for lunch today. If you like, add potato, pasta, or white beans. It's all good!
