…because it is lacking the ranch dressing flavor packet. Does anyone else remember this soup? Made of cabbage, a can of diced tomatoes, string beans, potatoes (maybe) and a packet of dry ranch dressing. Is it weird that I thought it was quite tasty? I feel this is more an early sign of my love of veggies rather than love of dieters . . . anything.
I raided the fridge last week to make something that followed this new 6 week detox. I’m calling it a detox because it sounds chic and it is more of a detox than a diet, whatever! Back to my fridge raid, I found the cabbage and collard greens, ginger and lemons. Soups on! Use any veggie you find as the yum is in the lemony, ginger broth.
I sauteed shallots and finely diced ginger then added the sliced cabbage and collards. The chicken stock was next followed by some quinoa. At the very last, I added slices of lemon. Lemon juice makes the best secret ingredient to most soups! Lastly some leftover cilantro. I enjoyed the simplicity of this soup.
Funny story(if you know Dan), I packed a hearty serving of soup for my lunch. The following day, when I was ready to head to work I could not find my soup. I called Dan to warm him he took my healthy soup in error. Now, he might have been spinning the truth but that night he said he, “actually enjoyed the soup”
