This creation came about from my recent cleanse/detox week.
Chop 3 slices bacon and saute. Add:
4 leeks, chopped
1/4 bunch celery, chopped
handful peppers from freezer
2 carrots, chopped
4 potatoes, chopped
handful frozen cauliflower and frozen par-boiled turnips
2 thyme sprigs
2 cans chicken broth
Cook all until vegetables are very tender. Blend with immersion blender until slightly smooth. I left some chunks in the soup.
This recipe seemed to cleverly disguise the turnips and cauliflower (Paul is not a turnip fan and Eleanor is not a cauliflower fan....although both will eat these vegetables).
