Dutch Oven

My Dutch Oven

Before I learned to cook I had no idea that a “dutch oven” was even a pot.  I only knew the "alternative" definition.  I recently educated my mother-in-law and aunt about this other definition.  My mother-in-law has decided she will now have to refer to her dutch oven as her “green pot” to save her some embarrassment.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, get with the program.  Send me a note and I will educate you too.  It’s not appropriate to discuss it alongside my new recipe.

My dutch oven is the most amazing pot in the whole world.  If you don't have one, go get one.  It's a fabulous investment and it will change your life.   I'm partial to Le Creuset.
ANYWAY…I cleaned out my fridge this afternoon.  I had a lot of vegetables that needed to be used and I was able to throw together an amazing pot (or dutch oven) of vegetable soup. 

Here’s what’s in it…
Yummy Veggie Soup
Olive Oil
Onions- ½ sliced
1 Green pepper -sliced
Garlic-minced
1 piece celery- chopped
Tomatoes- ½ heirloom
Noodles-whole wheat 2 cups
Beans-white 1 can
Kale-bunch chopped
Fresh Thyme
Chicken broth- Trader Joe’s Free Range Chicken Broth- 1 container
Vegetable broth Swanson’s Organic Vegetable Broth (low sodium)- ½ container
Salt-to taste

Just heat the oil, throw in the onions and green pepper along with the garlic.  Once they become fragrant, throw in the broth.  Toss together all of the vegetables and heat until they are soft.  At the last minute, put in the beans (rinsed) and the cooked whole wheat noodles.  This meal is really very hearty, low calorie and it will feed a lot of people.


Let me know how the dutch oven works for you!
