Green and Garlic Soup

This morning I woke up to one of those beautiful, drizzly mornings my six years in Seattle genetically modified me to love and realized I had the faint foreshadowing of a cold. This isn't the most tragic thing to happen to me but the combination of a cold and cold rain may prove disasterous to tomorrow's plans, which I'll discuss tomorrow.

What I Made:

The vegan podcast I listen too put out a video of a green and garlic soup a few months ago. I've probably made about 25 batches of the stuff since then. It's warm, low calorie, super-nutritious and...

Vicious (my 3yo) eats it like it's chocolate frosted sugar bombs. Seriously, the kids gets a big spoonful of soupy greens and slurps them like spaghetti. We call it our leaf soup and act like it's a big secret.

Anyway, it's like a vegetarian chicken soup and hopefully it will work it's magic on my mental facilities.

So go visit the site, watch the video, and pretend I spent the day maintaining my mom-of-the-year status and didn't let the kids watch movies all afternoon.


  1. Please tell me you purposely put in a Calvin and Hobbes reference in there.

    I'm going to have to try the soup.

  2. Sounds delicious, I bet it keeps the vampires and snowgoons away too! We'll have to try it as well.

  3. Yes, but is it "actually a little bland until you spoon sugar on it"?

    Will have to try - anything to get my family to eat more greens.
