Soup of the Week

Just a quick note to explain another strategy I am working on: to make a pot of soup each week. Sometimes I'll serve it for dinner, sometimes just for lunch. The benefits include:

  • using up leftovers and older stuff from the pantry
  • adding nutrient-rich foods (kale, beans, quinoa) in appetizing ways that are
  • easy to freeze and defrost later for a quick meal--like this:

Making Bone Soup will also count as a 'soup of the week'; then I can freeze portions of mineral-rich broth to use in future soups and other recipes.
