I concocted this recipe one night out of pure guilt. I was about to head out with a friend, and I was royally ditching hubby at home over the holidays. So as I was getting ready, I threw all these things in a pot, and what it made was something exciting and not like anything we stuffed ourselves with over Christmas.
I’ve blogged about soup in the past, but I’ve come to terms with the fact that I don’t like soup. Hubby is a big fan, so as I was making this soup, I had a little taste, and it may just convert me.
Leftover chicken or turkey, chopped into bite size pieces
5 cloves of garlic, chopped into big pieces
Root vegetables – I used 1 parsnip, 1 carrot and 2 potatoes chopped into little cubes
2 cups of stock – I used chicken stock as well as stock from soaking dried mushrooms. It was yum.
300ml of white wine
Half a chili, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
However, all of the above can be edited to suit what you have at your disposal. The things I will suggest sticking to are the meat, root veggies and a good stock. It definitely is an earthy soup.
So good. These pictures do zero justice.
