Gathering ingredients. I really am a big fan of frozen veggies, especially in soup, since the texture doesn't matter as much as just eating them on their own. No chopping, no washing, less cooking time. Love!
|green soup started out orange+red!|
My new-ish green stock pot, which I got for Christmas. Green soup in a green pot! After the fresh veggies were soft, the other ingredients went in.
I also had some salad with my soup dinner tonight, so I decided to make my favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing. It's seriously so good that when I get on a kick of making it, I crave salad. I tried making it in a new way this time by throwing all of the ingredients into a mason jar and it was wonderfully simple!
First a little balsamic vinegar goes in, plus some spicy mustard (maybe a teaspoon or two?).
Shake it up! Add salt slowly, tasting as you go. When it tastes good, add some olive oil. Done.
Salad with lots of blue cheese and the vinaigrette. So good!
I added some shredded cheddar to the soup per Kath's suggestion. I'm looking forward to more green soup for lunch tomorrow!
