Simple Soup Recipes
Simple soups packed with flavor!
I love taking simple soup recipes and making them fabulous! If it wasn't for soup, I wouldn't eat half the vegetables I eat now. It's the only way I'll eat kale, spinach and onions. I hide my celery, watercress and squash in their own veil of seasoned broths too. It's kitchen magic!
Okay, I admit I hate vegetables. We've never been close. To become good friends, I had to toss them into the food processor.They magically became invisible to my taste buds! This magic isn't limited to savory soups! Check out my Meatloaf recipe and Creamy Vegetable Soup.
When I made my first 'magic' recipe for my picky eaters, I told my kids that the 'green specks' were just 'spices'. It's wonderful to see my kids scarf down spaghetti or inhale homemade pizza with kale or carrots hidden inside. I can't taste it and neither can they! I love kitchen magic. It's like ...eating a ton of chocolate and losing 5 pounds!
Try this simple soup recipe in YOUR magic kitchen and I bet you'll have your family eating the little 'green spices' too!
