Souper food

This post goes back — waaaayyy back! It’s been awhile since I made this garbanzo bean soup, though I’ve certainly made it more recently than SIX years ago!

Fun to go back in time to 2009 (hi, stove in old apartment!).

In 2016, we’re officially out of garden-grown potatoes, so I actually had to — gasp! — go to the store and buy potatoes for this recipe. In fact, I think the only garden goods in last night’s batch were the garlic (thanks to Matthew’s work peeling, chopping, and freezing HUNDREDS of garlic cloves) and some celeriac that I pureed with the beans. If I had been feeling a bit more energetic, I could have subbed garden leeks for some or all of the [store-bought] onion.

Bon appétit!

Her Green Life

This past week, we cooked a few of our favorite staple recipes, including vegetable upside-down cake and garbanzo bean soup, using almost all local ingredients.  We thought these dishes tasted good before, but you can really taste the freshness of the garden and locally grown veggies (or you could, if you were here eating with us).

If you’re wondering how to make this soup, today is your lucky day.  In the past, I have been too lazy to post recipes here, but I  submitted this recipe to my church cookbook, so it was typed and ready to go.

    Your potato story reminds me of a trip to Ireland. When you drive through the countryside there are places along the road that you can buy REAL IRISH POTATOES What they don’t tell you is that you can’t take them back to the states as they are an agricultural product. Now a Dublin city girl told me that the Irish from the city do go into the country and buy these potatoes like we would here in the states but she said she had no clue why any Americans would buy them since they can’t take them home with ya. I often wonder if the airports in Ireland have stacks of potatoes with no where to go
