succotash! next!

I like to make soup. I love eating them more.

throw in everything that you found in the fridge

Here’s something I make every so often. It’s a not quite vegetable soup 🙂 . Not quite coz I normally add meat to it – either a chicken carcass or bones from a leftover roast. Roast duck leftovers make awesome soup.  This one uses normal chicken. Cold Storage was selling chicken carcasses for $1 🙂

I chopped up onions, brocolli, butternut squash, celery and carrots. I used diced tomatoes (unsalted) from a can as I think unless you buy the expensive ones from the grocery store, it’s hard, sour and generally un-yummy.

I also like to add these beans. Some call it pearl beans, others call it cranberry beans. Whatever it is, I love ’em! They add a nice chewiness to the soup. I also like to add 1-2 tablespoons of cooking oats. I like my soups thick like stews and oats do exactly that. Thicken, I mean. Good for poop too.

The resulting soul-warming (haha… yes, I love my own cooking a LOT!) concoction has been part of every meal except breakfast for the last 3 days. A dash of Tabasco’s habanero sauce ….. heaven 😀

    butternut squash in soups give it a sweet, subtle flavour… almost carroty. unfortunately they’re also expensive. mostly i use the local squash for soups and save the butternuts for roasting. similar taste, a third of the price.
    these beans are creamier than kidney beans, IMHO, and they take on the flavour of the soup/sauce.
