I bought these vegetables at the organic grocery store. Mine aren't ready yet.
I'm not a very good cook but I do get the urge every once in awhile.
I had the urge for real vegetable soup!
I looked at several recipes on Google and then this is what I came up with.
First I barely browned 2 cloves of garlic and a medium yellow onion. Added a little water and sautéed a couple sliced carrots.
Then added 4 cans of regular beef broth
all the rest of the vegetables:
1 chopped green cabbage
1 chopped zucchini
some fresh broccoli
About a quarter of a sweet red pepper
A handful of fresh spinach chopped
and one big TBSP of tomato paste.
I added pepper but no salt as there's a lot of salt in the canned beef broth!
Toward the end I added fresh basil and oregano from my garden.
I cooked it till the carrots were not crispy.
It is really quite delicious!
(I suppose it would be healthier with low salt broth but probably not as tasty!))
I have a lot to freeze plus meals for the next couple days.
