Snowy Day Soup

I love making soup when it’s snowing. I don't follow a recipe, but rather use whatever I have on hand. I get the onions sautéing, add celery and carrots, a bit of sea salt, and then I consider what else I might throw into the pot. If possible, I make a large pot of soup so there's plenty to give away to neighbors and to the surprise person who may be in need of some home cooked yumminess. I learned this from my mother. She always has several kinds of soup in the freezer! Here is a rough estimate of a soup I made on a snowy March night in 2022!

1-2 medium onions

1-2 carrots

2 stalks celery

1 sweet potato

A generous handful of kombu

1/2 dried wild mushrooms

1 1/2 cups French green lentils

14 ounce can diced tomatoes

1/2 cup red wine

1 teaspoon ground pepper

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon cumin

1.2 teaspoon coriander

1 teaspoon Marrakesh Sitar Moroccan Blend

4 cups vegetable broth

3-4 cups water, depending on how soupy you want it. 

•  Sauté onions until they are translucent.                                                                           •  Add red wine and let it cook about 5 minutes.

• Add carrots, celery, a pinch of salt, and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
• Add everything else. Bring to a boil, lower heat and allow the soup to simmer 30-40   minutes, until everything is soft. 

Garnish options

Sheep feta, parmesan, parsley
