Green Winter Soup

Green soup.  It does a body good.  None of this milk crap. Ask the experts. In fact, I really wish I had a photo of Taylor Swift or Beyonce, doing a Green Soup Mustache Ad Campaign, intead of got milk.
Oh, well. One can dream.

Hey all you greens-loving folks, and even you anti-green w e i r d o s:  this recipe is for you!  Follow the directions and see you on the flip side yo.

Green Winter Soup

  • 5-6 cups water
  • 1/4 heaping cup organic chicken broth powder
  • 2 heaping cups broccolli floretts (chopped: bite sized)
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 heaping cups frozen chopped kale OR spinach
  • 5 large mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth from pot
  • 1/2 cup (dried) brown or wild rice. (cook as directed)
  • 1 can cannelli beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 1 can corn (drained)
  • 1 TBSP Wocestershire
  • 1 tsp salt

{First, make your rice so it’s ready by the time everything else is. Set aside.}

Starting with a big soup pot: whisk the chicken broth powder with the water, and bring to a boil. (If you’d rather just use storebought chicken broth, more power to ya. but I can’t guarantee it’ll taste the same.)
Add the broccoli and celery to the boiling broth. Set a timer to boil for 8 minutes.

MEANWHILE, saute the mushrooms with the oil, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, and chicky broth.

After the 8 minute boil is up, add the frozen spinach/kale and the cooked rice. Lower heat.

Separate 1 cup of soup from the pot. Let it cool for a minute. Then pour it in your blender with the can of drained/rinsed cannelli beans. Blend it for a quick 10 seconds. It’s a thicker broth texture for the soup. Add contents back into the pot.

Then you can add the sautéed mushrooms, corn, worcestershire, and 1 tsp salt.

Simmer on low, covered, for 8-10 more minutes.

Bowls of soup should ALWAYS be served with sliced, toasted, and buttered Rosemary Potato Bread from Kneaders Bakery. Because my mama works there and she’s the bomb. Also, the bread has literal chunks of potato in it. Wipe that drool off your face.
