Something simple for dinner...soup.
Healthy, filling, satisfying...
I make a pot on the weekend and we eat it all week (the kids don't usually partake, sadly).
Sometimes it can be a complete meal in a bowl, vegetarian chili or minestrone.
Lately we have been really enjoying vegetable soups, the French way (pureed, not too thick).
This week's recipe:
5 russet potatoes, scrubbed, with skins
5 large carrots, scrubbed, with skins
2 large zucchini squash with skin
2 cloves garlic
1 small head broccoli with stalk
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes with basil
Cook all together in a large kettle until soft, let cool
Puree , adding water until desired consistency
Add salt (or Lo-Salt) and black pepper to taste
Enjoy! It gets better each time you warm it up. Add salad and good bread, maybe a sprinkle of fresh parmesan, a few nuts or a fried egg, and you have a complete dinner in no time.
