Quick and Easy Meal

Here is a quick and healthy way to make soup.  I go to Trader Joe’s (or your local favorite store) and buy different  cartons (32 OZ) of their various vegetable soups. I use fresh vegetables bagged, or from the produce aisle, or farmer’s markert. Steam and  then puree them in a food processor.  For example, I sometimes get a bag of mixed broccoli/califlower and after steaming and pureeing, put them in a pan and add organic butternut squash soup. It seerves 3 to 8 people, depending on portions.
  If you want to skip the steaming part, make a red/yellow/orange pepper soup. I buy a 32 OZ carton of Organic Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper soup. I puree 2 or 3 peppers and put the puree in a pot on the stove, adding the carton of soup.  Just heat through and serve.
  You can steam and puree the veggies ahead of time, put them in a small container and refridgerate until almost serving time.  It takes around 5 to 10 minutes to heat up the puree veggies and soup.
  This is a wonderful starter  when entertaining, bound to get you rave reviews.  For a simple meal with the kids, add a sandwich or salad and you are done.
