Cureall Veggie Soup

Looks like Juli has teh Pl@gu3 or something. So in order to make her feel better, I made a Vat of CureAll LazyVeggieSoup™

Chopped up a whole mess of garlic, one medium onion, sauteed both with some oil and hot paprika

Dumped the garlic and onion into a vat with 2 cartons of veggie broth (told you I was lazy)

Added one sizeable can of diced tomatoes.

Shredded 1 lb of carrots, 1 lb of celery, added to the vat.

Added 1 lb of chopped baby spuds to the bubbling vat

Added one well chopped small head of cabbage to the bubbling vat

Seasoned the vat with whole peppercorns, ground pepper, seasoning salt, more hot paprika, more garlic (moar!), a bit of thyme.

Let the vat simmer for a good while.

Serve to ill people.

Sounds promising. I rarely have all those ingredients on hand, but! That's a solid recipe nonetheless, and I add it to my file. *swipe!*

Hey, veggie broth has saved my life more than once since I went veg*n. Don't knock it.

Oh nothing against veggie broth. I would have used chicken broth, but its not allowed in our house.

Nom. A bit of ginger in there would probably also be yummy, and add to the cure all properties.

Ginger would definitely be a good addition.

And did it cure her? Because if it is indeed cureall soup, I needs some.

Well, she certainly started bouncing back anyways. She'll prolly be able to go to work tomorrow.

With all the chopping and bubbling you did, I am highly amused that you were too 'lazy' to make vegetable broth ;)

Vegetable Stock

* 1/2 cup dried porcini mushrooms
* 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
* 4 medium carrots, chopped
* 1 medium leek, cleaned thoroughly and thinly sliced
* 3 celery ribs, sliced thin
* 6 cloves garlic, sliced

For Herbes de Provence

* 1 tablespoon dried thyme
* 1 tablespoon dried savory
* 1 tablespoon dried marjoram
* 1 tablespoon dried oregano
* 1 tablespoon dried fennel seed (optional)
* 1 teaspoon dried sage (optional)
* 1 teaspoon rosemary (optional)
* 1 teaspoon lavender (optional)

1 Place all ingredients, along with ingredients for Herbes de Provence, and 10 cups of water into a stockpot or heavy kettle.

2 Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour; strain.

Aside from the Herbes de Provence, you pretty much did all the work!

I just know which corners to cut, and when. :) I make a killer veggie stock, when I've got the time. There's some interesting substitutions to mine there though.
