Delish! I had a little fun with the recipe, but all in all kept it pretty true to its spirit. I used regular broth, but then subbed some previously roasted carrots, turnips, and sweet potatoes. I used all butternut squash puree (instead of half squash and half pumpkin). I doubled the amt of tomato sauce. Used fresh kale in place of the spinach and just threw it in in the beginning with the onions/garlic. Also threw in a half a zucchini that needed used up. I cooked the veggies on the stove for 25 minutes and transferred it all to the crock pot and let it cook for about 4 hours on low. Served with sweet potato bread. Thanks for sharing!
I must confess, I was a little hesitant about this at first, but by the time the soup was done, the flavor had developed quite nicely. I didn't have the green beans or corn, and used chicken stock instead of veg stock, and used my own frozen chard rather than spinach. I think everything came out really well! I wish I hadn't used up my quinoa the day before, as I do think it would have been a nice addition to pack in a little more protein. Overall, a great way to use up extra veggies from the CSA! Added some salt and pepper near the end as well, and drizzled a little olive oil over the bowls when served. Will definitely make this again!
I found this recipe after seeing you hint on how to use Quinoa wash as an insect repellent on the Quinoa-Toasted page and wanted to thank you on your page, &decided to see your other recipes. This sounded so good I had to try it. I have not eaten it yet, but my house smells so yummy right now. I sub. green onions for walla walla sweets (from the garden) and added summer squash because I don't have either puree, and although miso is good for you, I don't care for it, but I'm looking forward to dinner!
I had a bunch of veggies in the fridge that I needed to use up...and almost all of them are in this soup. This is a delicious and healthful veggie soup. I could not find miso in my local market, but the flavors were so great I didn't miss it. All I added was a dash of salt and quite a few grinds of black pepper. This is a great way to get TONS of healthy veggies in your diet...and you won't even know they're all in there. Can't wait to freeze some...I have lots of leftovers! Thanks for posting!
