Oh So Good…Simple, Too!


IMG_0746 (1)These days roasting is my favorite way to prepare vegetables.  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne is wonderful all by itself, but mixing several together is even better and a great way to use a little of this and a little of that from the refrigerator.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEasy?  You bet!  All that is needed is seasonings, oil and always garlic.    I particularly like Herbes ‘d Provence or fresh rosemary and either avocado or olive oil.  

Always we have some veggies left over, and I’ve found they make a great soup.  Already the vegetables are seasoned so just add some chicken broth and maybe a bit of half and half or milk for a richer version.  When the ingredients are heated through puree to a creamy texture.  Here is one of the many instances I find a handheld blender very handy.

  1. What a great idea Lulu. Easy soup with yummy roasted veges. And so quick to make I think, too?

  2. I am with you on roasting those vegetables. I hate to waste anything and roasting most vegetables together is a great way to use them up and for the soup! Beautiful pictures (and salad…yum!)

  3. Linda, I always roast vegetables and often make soup with the leftovers! Might have to do that tomorrow! Always enjoy visiting with you!

  4. Sounds yummy!!

  5. Roasted vegetables are my favorite too, but I’ve never cooked with avocado oil, does it add a different flavor? Great idea to make a soup with the leftovers!

  6. During pretty weather we cook outside a lot , and I grilled veggies. When I can’t do that I love roasting vegetables. They are simply delicious cooked this way, not to mention easy. I love your idea of adding to broth for soup.
    Happy weekend.

  7. We’ve been enjoying roasting vegetables these days, too. Deep flavor! Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Great idea for vegetables. I M always looking for ways to serve vegetables. In my culture we are always cooking with a sauce. Seasonings might just be the trick and make it all lighter calorie wise too

  9. 🙂 This looks delicious and I bet it smells and tastes just as good.
    now I’m hungry and must find myself something to eat. Could dig into your soup… 🙂
    Have a very HAPPY weekend! 🙂
