Lizzie was thrilled however, because it gave her a chance to try out her new recipe. My recuperating little one has a bit more time on her hands lately so my resourceful daughter has decided to try her hand at writing recipes. "Can I make dinner, mom?" she asks. Uh, yeah.
She started with 4 carrots and 2 potatoes. Her original recipe called for 3 potatoes but we only had 2 left in the bin. .
After carefully removing the skins and chopping them, she tossed them in the pan along with 1 peeled chopped onion and 1 clove of garlic. Sous-chef mom assisted with the onion chopping.
For seasoning, she added 1 tsp each of dried oregano and rosemary, plus a dash of salt and pepper. 4 1/2 cups of vegetable broth and 2 cups of water later she was ready to cook.
She brought the soup to a boil and then allowed it to simmer for 45 minutes, until the vegetables were tender.
