Monday Green Tip! Make soup

March 17, 2014 2 Comments

You might be wondering what soup has to do with living green? I often end up with an assortment of vegetables on hand and want to use them up before they spoil. American's throw away an astonishing amount of food! I often turn to making soup as a way to use up those veggies while providing a very nutritious meal for my family I love to garden, support local CSAs and buy organic produce but this can be more difficult to access and afford in the winter when our favorite vegetables are out of season. I love to freeze vegetables I purchase at the farmer's market in the summer for use in soups all winter. There is also a great assortment of organic vegetables in the frozen section of many grocery stores that are at affordable prices year round. med102787_0407_splitpea_vert In the spirit of Saint Patric's Day I wanted to share my favorite recipe for split pea soup! I can't say green soup is everyone in my family's favorite, so I freeze it in small batches and enjoy it for my lunches. Spring is a great time of the year to find ham at affordable prices and cooking the soup with the ham bone gives so much flavor! I skip the onion and use leeks in my soup and add dried herbs I grew the previous summer. Save some green and live green with soup all winter long!
