Make it up as you go Soup!

Feeling headachy and off today:(  So I made some soup! You can too….

This is a make it up as you go soup. There is really no recipe, just use what you have in your house. Here’s what I used today… 1 large chopped carrot, 1 large onion chopped (not in above pic) 4 cloves garlic minced, 3 Tablespoons curry powder, 1 bay leaf, 2 kaffir lime leaves ( I got a bag of them at a local Indian grocery store, they impart a lovely flavour but not necessary), 3 cardamon pods, 1/2 cup of red lentils, 1 cup of lentils rice and bean mix ( they were in a bag together), 1 Tablespoon grated ginger, 1 cup of frozen mixed veggies, 6 cups of veggie broth.

First I sauteed the onions in my new Christmas present cast iron pot, you can use oil but I don’t…I just stir them and as they start to stick I add a bit of broth to unstick them. When they are golden, stop.

Next step is to just dump in the rest of the ingredients,  and add the rest of the broth

Throw in a handful of mixed frozen veggies. Of course you can add some fresh veggies, anything goes. I just didn’t have anything on hand today.

Add some grated fresh ginger and simmer for about 40 minutes. If you are lucky enough to find some coconut milk in your cupboard you can add that too:)

Et voila!! So yummy !!. Enjoy.
