|Kitchen Sink Soup|
It's been getting cold here in the Pacific Northwest! Which makes it the perfect time of year to savor a nice bowl of homemade soup. Which is also the perfect way to use up the extra veggies you (I) may have...over bought....
1/4 Red Onion
Garlic, three cloves, smashed and sliced thickly
Carrot, two, thickly sliced
Potato, two, sliced
Ginger root, 2" whole
Spinach, cleaned and removed from stem
Collard Greens, one bunch, removed from stem and sliced
Heat olive oil in a large soup pot and saute the onion until soft. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant. Add the carrots and potato, saute, add in the greens and ginger and fill the pot with filtered water. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Float the mushrooms on top and simmer until veggies are soft. Check and adjust seasonings as needed.
