the soup.

This is the soup I made yesterday. I used leftover roasted vegetables...tossed them in a pot, added chicken broth and water, a little extra salt, a little bit of thyme...and simmered to let the flavors marry. (Sometimes I like to pretend I'm a Food Network star...)
Once the flavors were well acquainted I took the mixture off the heat. Then I really got the relationship going with my immersion blender. I mashed up those veggies real good...until the soup became a nice creamy consistency. And then I cracked a bit more pepper on top...because I love pepper.
Then...I took pictures! Ahhh...the life of a blogger...fresh photos and cold soup!
And...it was OK. Yes...just OK.
The night before when I roasted all of those veggies I also roasted some garlic cloves. Which is good...I like roasted garlic. But I don't like a LOT of it...and it was just too much for that amount of vegetables. So it was just OK. Edible. But next time? Less garlic...if any at all.

I betcha I would have liked it. lol

I did the same this week...tried a new dish...sauteed every veggie I brought home from the farmers market (including baby garlic), then tossed in some egg (cross between an omelet and scrambled). It was pretty decent and filling. I enjoyed it but I'm not certain anyone else would have. lol

I looks great! I've made some soups like this with a single vegetable, but not several. Your idea to use left overs this way is ingenious! If it needs more zip next time, add a little grated parmesan cheese on top! (Seriously, can you have too much cheese?)

Looks yummy, nice work:-). It sounds like you have one, but I'll mention for your reader-friends that I'm giving away two hand blenders this week. Now we can all make yummy soups like Michelle:-).

That looks so nummy! I didn't think there was such a thing as too much garlic.
