Zen and the Art of Soup

Soup is at once the easiest and yet, least understood food. All you really need is sugar (vegetables) salt and fat (oils). Mixed in hot water!
  • ½ cup each Pearled barley cooked with Lintels or beans???
  • What ever vegetables you can find (food bank?)
  • I like to saute' mushrooms in balsamic vinegar.
  • Nettles and Sorrel or maybe Savory, Basil, Oregano, Celery seed, fresh Ginger....
  • Kim-Chi or Sauerkraut, chopped in machine?
  • Miso is even better for the salty warmth.
  • Tahini (to taste) or possibly peanut butter without hydrogenated fats! or at least olive oil! Blue Cheese is a fabulous tasting fat.
Heat precooked legumes and grains. Add raw Kimchi, and buttery fat or ground seeds. Try not to gulp it down!

Traditionally a base for soup is 2 parts onion 1 part carrot and 1 part celery, but a better base is leeks carrots celeriac. But anything works if you have olive oil and salt.
