While we didn’t get another snow day- the weather this morning was definitely cold enough for it. (29F– Brr!) So, it was time to make another big pot of soup. I hate the cold, but I love soup. Some days I feel like getting to warrant making soup is the only plus of the cold.
Vegetable Purees are one of those types of “soups” I make all the time. I guess they’re not really soups, but they are soup-like and make a good quick meal or side. They’re also so easy once you know the formula. Just sauté whatever allium you want -leek, onion, garlic. (comparison here) Add your primary vegetable and heat to soften. (preferably roast it first if it’s a root or hearty veggie, way more flavor that way) Use a 1/2 broth, 1/2 water ratio– just enough to cover your veggies. Add seasonings and/or herbs. Boil for a few minutes. Add a cream/thickening ingredient if you wish (greek yogurt, cream, milk, flour). Heat through. Puree. Done.
