A Hearty Vegetable Soup

A Hearty Vegetable soup is order during our cold winter months. In this bowl only the potatoes are from our garden. I yearn for Spring so we can start a vegetable planting. How about you?
What do you add to your home made hearty soups. I would love to know.
I went out to our garden and under our blanket of snow was Kale to my surprise, along with Chard. Yeah!
My fresh kale and chard unburied from my garden. I think I could have gotten some carrots too. It was mighty cold out there, I was ready to get back in and start my soup.
I am thinking that this could almost be good enough to eat just like this. What do you think?
I am now ready to add this to my stock pan, using some organic chicken broth to add as liquid.
This soup is looking mighty hardy. Sometimes I will add some meat to it, to give it some protein. I like making large batches so I can freeze some to put in the freezer. Do you stock up for those days that you just want to pull something out of the freezer that is quick and easy?
Next in line to prepare; are Mary Jane's whole wheat biscuits from The Mary Jane Farm Budget Mix. Go to Mary Jane's Farm to get more information on ordering your own. You won't be disappointed.

A biscuit must be heart shaped, I am thinking. Do you have any ritual about your shapes for biscuits?
A perfect compliment to our nourishing hearty vegetable soup don't you think? I hope you are all cozy and warm. I am so ready for spring!

  1. You are not alone in wanting Spring and warmth. I'm sure the soup will warm you up and the weather needs to do the same. I always throw a little Bob's Red Mill Pearl Barley in my veggi soup. I guess to add some grains. Burrrrrr it's cold outside so sending warm hugs!!
