Clean Soup

One of the things I’ve experimented with recently is making soup.   I love soup in the winter when it’s cold outside.  During the Daniel Fast in January, I wanted soup, but all of the canned soups have sugar and other things in them that I couldn’t have, so I had to make my own.   Tomato was my first try and oh my goodness it was yummy!  Chopped onion, garlic, vegetable broth and tomatoes….pureed in the blender to make a nice smooth soup—it was “souper” easy! haha, I’m punny.  Even my oldest declared it was much better than the canned variety–who knew!?  I’ve made it a couple of times since I ended the fast—just cuz I wanted it.

I also made a Corn and Potato Chowder–what’s a chowder?  I still don’t know.   Basically another blender soup—make it, puree’ it, eat it.  It was pretty good, too.

Below is a picture of the Butternut Squash Soup I made this week.  I roasted the ugly squash thing in the oven, mashed it, then put it in a pot with sauteed onion and garlic, chicken stock and poultry seasoning.   and the again with the blender.   (Between the soup and the smoothies, I think I’ve used my blender more in the last 2 months than in the past 2 years!)  It was delicious–a little sweet even.  and pretty.  I love pretty food.

So, bye bye canned soup.   This is the new way of soup for me.

And in the interest of full disclosure, I wrote this blog post while munching mindlessly on Cheez-Its.  Definitely not a “clean” food.   I’m a work in progress.
