|The Parsley Soup Looks Like Carrot Soup!|
I was also thinking about favorite soups that I have made over the years. Here is my mother's recipe for vegetable soup. I think I would call it Meaty Vegetable Soup because it is just not vegetables. It does have meat in it. You can also make it without the meat. I can't eat this anymore because of the tomatoes! I think you will enjoy it.
Meaty Vegetable Soup
(Makes 4-6 servings)
1 lb. of meat cubes
4 c. of water
3 t. salt
1/4 c. washed rice
1 large (28 oz.) can tomatoes
1/4 c. or more raw potatoes
1 10 oz. package mixed vegetables
1 onion, chopped
2 or 3 ribs of celery, chopped
1 green pepper chopped
Cook meat, water and salt together for 1-1/2 hours, add rice, potatoes, tomatoes, onion, celery and green pepper and cook for 45 minutes. Add mixed veggies and cook for 30 minutes. Always keep covered, bring to a boil and let simmer while cooking. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking. Serve with feta-sage cornbread or a good hearty bread and herb butter.
I also made the last lemon bread with crystallized lemon peel mix (They don't make it any more!) from Lollipop Tree I had from the Village Herb Shop and added the last fresh lemon verbena leaves from last year and some nuts! Looks like the start of a pesto! The Herbal Husband approved!
