Two Bean Vegetable Soup with Rosemary

It's been colder here in Marin that we can remember, so soups are in high demand chez moi. This healthful bowl included white and red beans, orange cauliflower, red cabbage, carrots, potatoes, green beans, and chard. The base was simply vegetarian "chicken" stock, a little marinara, and a tablespoon of green olive paste. And plenty of onions and garlic, of course. I used fresh rosemary from the garden, which really brought the flavors together. Everything you need to stay healthy in this cold snap.

We were very surprised to wake up this morning to ice on the lagoon (that's bay water):

That's a first!

Stay cozy everyone.

I was so hoping that it would get cold enough to freeze our fountain. It makes for such a fun photo but it was only 31 and that just doesn't do it.
Lucky you by the bay. Beautiful photo.

Asha -16 bean: you can't be serious!

Tanna - we are very fortunate to live on a lagoon that is filled from bay water through a canal (part of our flood control system). We see lots of wonderful birds and can even swim in the water in the summer. But ice on the lagoon ...that we've never seen. We're literally at sea level so this is a real rarity.

hi atxvegan - soup is wonderful food. Stay warm!
