3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Healthy Soup

Healthy soup with many ingredients.

This is a soup I had made when the weather was still cool.  Whenever I make a soup, I add whatever ingredients I have on hand.  I start by first browning the beef or boiling the chicken.  In this case, I made a chicken soup.  I also love adding all kinds of ingredients.

Healthy soup includes wet vegetable ingredients.

I made the white rice separately.  I opened the cans of tomato paste, corn, diced tomatoes, and mixed vegetables.  I also added some frozen bell peppers.  I had bought and cut the various colored bell peppers and had frozen them in their individual plastic baggies.  Doing the cutting and storing into the freezer always cuts down on cooking.

Healthy soup includes these dry spices.

Spices add wonderful taste to soups.  In the soup, I added lemon pepper, cumin seeds (which I placed in the used bottle of minced onions), salt, celery salt, garlic salt, and dried cilantro.  Dried cilantro is good for detoxification.  Cumin is a good source of iron and aids in digestion.  Garlic helps the immune system.

Healthy soups can be accompanied by other foods.

Finally, I served myself.  I put some of the white rice within my bowl of soup.  I warmed up some corn tortillas.  I added some lemon juice, which has vitamin C.  The soup was delicious, and I definitely did not feel guilty eating it.

How about you, my readers?  Do you like soups?  Do you like to make soups?  If so, what do you like to put in your soups?  I hope you add lots of healthy ingredients.

  1. I do love soup it's all I crave lately other than my scrambled eggs with caramelized onion. my two favorites are tomato and great northern bean soup. Once I even put beef broth and beef strip and onions I had left over in the bean soup. The tomato soup is something I recently took on because I wanted it to look like what my husband was used to. So I bought a food mill. Great investment. I put carrots in it to make it sweet and of course onions but my children never taste it because I've milled it really fine. I like to put rice in my bowl of soups filling and yummy. Makes me feel like a kid again :)

  2. Casa_DeArtes,

    I like carmelized onions with small bits of meat on corn tortillas. We've been buying tacos from some mobile carts. They are delicious. Perhaps, I will take a picture of some.

    The good thing about soups is that you can put anything into them.
