Baby it’s cold outside

Actually, we haven’t had much snow here in the big nj, just a few flurries one night which melted within a day or two, however, it is still chilly.  My favorite fix to warm my body…soup! This veggie soup has plenty of vitamins to keep away a cold or flu, and bulgar for some bulk.  (B-B …just like my sister B!)  It is pretty simple to make, let it simmer and then devour! It looks festive and warms the soul, couldn’t ask for a more perfect soup.

Le ingredients: zucchini, carrots, onion, diced tomatoes, black beans, olive oil, garlic, chicken bouillon cube, bulgar wheat (not all pictured!)…

…cumin, salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron

Fresh garlic cloves look shiny! Wow, I am easily amused :)

Heat the oil in a large soup pot. Add the chopped sweet onion and sauté over medium-low heat until translucent. Then add the chopped carrots and zucchini

Add in the minced garlic and continue to sauté for about 5-7 minutes

Place one bouillon cube in a medium bowl, one with a spout works best, and pour 6 cups of boiling water over.  Stir around to dissolve.

Pour broth over the sauteed vegetables

Also add in the bulgar (or quinoa), tomatoes, beans and spices.

Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 35-50 minutes, the longer you cook, the more the flavors will mend and develop.

I loved this soup! It is perfect on a chilly day and makes enough so you will have leftovers for later in the week.  While chopping the vegetables seems tedious, the rest is pretty much waiting and dumping in ingredients.  I think I am going to make some when I get home…I love soup!

With love and cupcakes,
Cookteen
