Catherine's Vegetable Soup
I'd say I'm back on the vegetable-straight-and-narrow after last night's nachos indulgence, but that would make it sound as if this soup wasn't indulgent. And, that would be kinda crazy!
I was in the pleasurable position of having such a wealth of fabulous produce, that storage was starting to be an issue. So I threw a lot of vegetables into this soup: potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, carrots, peas, dino kale, and mushrooms. A vegetable broth with a little fresh rosemary and red chili peppers, red lentils, tomato paste, and white beans. Topped with a crostini topped with a horseradish cheddar. Yeah!
But, honestly, discovery of the evening was that you can eat sweet potatoes raw! I don't know if I just lucked out, but my organic sweet potato was super sweet and crunchy raw. Delicious!
