Wednesday night (with a fresh veggie delivery looming) I was staring at half head of cauliflower (that thing was enormous), about half of the bok choi, three leaves of kale, some left over mixed greens (no lettuce), about a third of a head of broccoli (that was turning icky colored), a spring onion, and some basil.
Out of desperation, I chopped it all up bite sized, including the greens, (I discarded the icky tops of the broccoli and just used the stalks) and threw it all into a pot with
4 cubes of vegetable bullion,
several cloves of minced garlic and
about 12 cups of water (just enough to cover the vegetables).
I sautéed the garlic and onion in the bottom of the pot with some olive oil and then added all the rest. 30 minutes of simmering later (until veggies get soft) and it was great. Made 4 mason jars of soup.
