I love Hearty Soups – they’re basically a throw everything you got in a pot kinda soup. And somehow they always manage to turn out delicious! My mom actually used to make these kind of soups, but where I first discovered my love of the “hearty soup” was on a month long canoe trip in the wilderness! Yep! I lived in the woods for a month! I used to go to summer camp and every year you spend more and more time off the campsite on a canoe trip in the wilderness until you got to “advanced camp”, which was the month long trip! On the trip, when we were almost out of food for that week, we would just throw everything we had left into a pot and make a “hearty soup”, which I always loved. Advanced camp was an amazing experience. One day I will tell you all about it – and show you pictures of me portaging a canoe !
Anyway, back to Emily’s hearty soup! It consisted of spinach, carrots, lotsa different beans, rice…. I ‘m sure I’m missing stuff!
Hearty soups are definitely better in colder weather but, they are delicious any time! I really should make more of them! They are healthy and delicious!
It gets the Just Flourishing seal of approval! For desset JH whipped up a chocolate birthday cake with vanilla icing, almonds and strawberries! It was really good! Especially the icing! Maybe I can bug her for the recipe for you! And we all enjoyed some pink birthday bubbly!
