My recipe tonight is Harvest Pantry Soup. In my garden I have zucchini, carrots, green beans, and tomatoes available for this soup. In the pantry I have canned beans, Orzo pasta, and chicken stock.
This is an easy side dish to dinner or a quick main dish for lunch. I saute (all finely chopped) half an onion, two stalks of celery, and carrots in olive oil for a few minutes. Add to that dried oregano and basil, some cumin and ground coliander, and a bit of cayanne. And fresh garlic, minced. Cook for a bit.
To that add a can of beans and 8 oz of chicken stock. Get to full burble and add a small amount of the pasta called Orzo.
To this add chopped vegetables like green beans and zucchini, and simmer for awhile.
When ready to serve, spoon into a bowl and add chopped tomatoes and shredded cheese. Stir. Top with tortilla chips. And enjoy a healthy yummy harvest soup!
