I woke up this morning with a head cold and I'm trying to get over it. I have had a ton of tea, made soup for lunch... and when it was supper time, I only wanted soup, but it needed to be filling enough for my kids too.
So here is what I did:
I threw the following into a pot:
8-10 cups of chopped milk thistle (I foraged these milk thistle plants from out in back of my house, but if you can't do that, or don't want to, you can use spinach or chard... The 10 cup measure is for raw. This equals about 1 normal size package of frozen spinach)
1 onion, diced
4 carrots, diced
2 kishuim, sliced (kishuim are a light green squash, very similar to zucchini. the main difference is their color.)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
salt, pepper to taste
Later, when it was at a full rolling boil, I added a package of whole wheat lokshen noodles, and my leftover veggie meatballs from the other day...
Bring back to a boil and simmer for 5-7 more min. Serve hot.
