I tried something new….
I bought one of those pre-packaged soup vegetable trays at the supermarket. It came with a turnip (I’ve actually never cooked one before), a giant parsnip, some celery, carrot, and an onion, along with dill and parsley herbs.
I’m always looking for new ways to add more vegetables to my diet, and soup is a great way to do this.
*Takes all of 5 minutes to throw in a crockpot.
*Cooks itself all day while you’re at work.
*Only dirties one pot.
*And isn’t so filling that you need to undo your belt after eating it.
For this soup, I added a sweet potato, peeled and sliced and a can of cannellini beans (don’t forget to rinse them). I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegetarian foods, lately, so I passed on adding chicken.
I’m so sick of eating those birds…
For the broth, I used an Artisan chicken broth from Saffron Road (32 oz. box), with 1 cup of water, and some seasoned salt.
I’ll add some fresh baked bread from the bakery, and maybe some apple sauce for a simple, healthy meal.
Dinner can be easy, quick, have little clean up, and still be healthy.
