How about a soup recipe for the “It’s about time rain” weather we are finally having here in So. Cal.
I didn’t plan on blogging this….but it turned out so good that I needed a place to permanently archive it. That would be why there is only (1) picture. Also, I am a cook that doesnt really measure anything, I go by sight and taste, knowing what flavors work and what doesn’t. A gift I got from my mom….she always cooked from scratch.
So here goes…
8 Cups Of Water
I container of Trader Joes Vegetable Stock
3 Tbsp Butter
3 Stalks Celery (diced)
1 can Diced Trader Joes Fire Roasted Tomatoes
1 package lentils (rinsed)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1 small bag baby spinach
3 carrots (chopped) I like the multi colored carrots for TJ’s
3 Tbsp Curry Powder
2 Bay leafs
2 tsp of thyme….(give or take)
chicken/tomato bouillon (to taste) I use the KNORR brand and its to replace the salt.
*of course you can replace the Trader Joes brand with any brand you want….or have on hand. I just happen to be a TJ exclusiveness.
Literally throw everything in the pot, bring to a boil and then turn down and simmer for about 2.5 hours.
Drop Basil Biscuits
Follow the directions for dumplings on the bisquick box. HA! Add in chopped fresh basil. I replace milk with almond milk.
Bake according to directions.
BAM! you have yourself an fully satisfying meal.
You can really add anything to your basic biscuit dough; cheddar cheese, green onions, jalapeños.
I would even try dumplings with this soup recipe. YUM!!
This makes a ton of soup and you will have lots of leftovers.
Let me know if you make it and how it turned out.
