Proud winner of Taste Something Brown! +veggie soup recipe!

October 4, 2009

Super excited to utilize my prize from the “Taste Something Brown” contest at Friday’s salon miniscule, a donation only, guest list only, non-smoking only, cat-friendly house-based performance collective run by rosie and paul v. Blindfolded, I was the first to identify the mystery items (a cashew and a shot of soy sauce) that were placed in my hand amongst shouts from the crowd of “Ewww!” “Gross!” and “Don’t eat that!”

The prize I selected from the awesome pool of participant gifts was a very durable soup thermos. I anticipate this sleek, silver equipment to keep my leftover soup hot from a morning warmup until my lunch break at work. And will be awesome for our upcoming east coast adventure road trip in a few weeks.

We made a great veggie soup for dinner last night, here’s how:

1. Saute 1 onion, 4 celery stalks, and 2 cloves of garlic with a couple of dried chiles and a 1/2 tsp. of both cumin and coriander powder in olive oil .
2. When onions are translucent add a small can of tomato sauce. After a minute or two, add a 15 oz can of black beans, liquid and all.
3. Add 8 cups of veggie stock or water and 1 lb. of fresh or frozen broccoli.
4. Salt & cracked pepper to season. Be careful because the tomato paste, black beans, and stock may already be salty.
5. Cook until all veggies are softened but the broccoli still has a little snap to it.

Serve with bread (this is a great dippin’ soup) + a little squirt of Sriracha to spice it up and clear you out!
