Veggie soup

Reading one of the frequent recipes on the Blond Duck last week (she also tells marvelous stories) I thought that particular recipe would be interesting to make - it was for roasted vegetable soup. So that night on the way home from work I stopped and picked up a veggie assortment. Got home, cut everything up and popped it into one of my new ovens (if you’ve been reading about the kitchen work, the ovens are the only thing in there right now)


The next day (I do get home late, no time to do it all in one evening) I pulled out the little food processor (I don’t have a big fancy one, just a small one that took five batches to grind up these veggies) and smashed it all up, put it in a pot with broth and a while later:


It was marvelous. Thanks Miranda!

Because I also have a sweet tooth, and there are always bags of Nestle’s chips in the pantry (never know when the urge for Tollhouse cookies might strike), I also picked up a can of sweetened evaporated milk at the same shopping trip. It’s not fancy fudge, but the milk, bag of chips, some vanilla, walnuts and dried cranberries, a microwave and just a few minutes you end up with:


Use plastic wrap in the containers, it lifts out clean for cutting into chunks.

Surprise, there is some left!

My vegetarian partner will go gaga for that soup. And me? I'm the one with the sweet tooth.

I hope you mean chocolate chips! The fudge sounds divine! :-D

So does the soup, but I'm more a pea and ham or pumpkin kinda gal :-)

Those brownies look delicious. I am not sure what happens in the salt ponds.

All these years and I thought the microwave was for warming leftovers.

I'm SOOO glad you liked it. I'm always nervous when I post recipes. And I'm so glad your granddaughter likes the Butterfly Dress. :) You made my day!

That soup really sounds interesting. I could see it being in my future; the fudge too but I need more sweet stuff like I need a hole in my head!

Fudge is an excellent start to my morning. Now if only I had some to eat.

The soup sounds great. I'm making French onion soup tomorrow, but I'l try out your veggie one soon.

Well aren't you handy in the kitchen. I'd love to make that soup by the way. I will try and forget about the fudge though! :)
