Just sent this email to Dreamhost support… wonder if they’ll help me with my crazy email problem (not their fault).
(Dreamhost is where I’m hosting this blog, and some other sites)
So I’ve been home sick for the past couple days, and had a craving for nutritious food. Beyond taking vitamins and Echinacea, I figure eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables is likely the fastest and best way to get healthy.
I wanted to make something that I could grow in the garden. Here’s what I put together:
- 3 red potatoes, diced
- 1 red onion, diced
- 3 large carrots, chopped
- 1 bunch of celery, chopped
- 1 can cooked/seasoned tomatoes
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped
- some olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Put onions and olive oil in a pot on the stove. Let brown. Finish chopping the rest of the veggies. Add everything else, and maybe a few cups of water. Let everything simmer for at least an hour.
Serve in a cup or bowl. The fun part was just being able to leave this on the stove and keep eating whenever I want to. And it tastes magical.
Oh, later, I added some roasted pepper and tomato soup from Trader Joe’s, that made it even more tasty.
Now, this is my first time making something from scratch in a long time, so consider the above recipe a rough draft. I look forward to making this after growing my own vegetables in the near future.
Also, I plan to try different combinations of vegetables and herbs and spices. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
