Improvised soup and stir-fry!

It's really nice to be able to open up my fridge and see loads of fresh vegetables just waiting to be combined into something healthy and filling. Though I didn't have kidney beans or zucchini I decided to make a sort-of minestrone out of the beans, onions, celery, green pepper, potatoes, carrots, parsley, basil, and Swiss chard that all came from the farm.

 First I sautéed the celery, onions, carrots, then I added the potatoes and green pepper. Then I added vegetable broth, garlic, seasoning and just kept adding vegetables.

 The Swiss chard came in at the very end after it had been rinsed, soaked, and chopped roughly.
 Served it with salad- of course cucumber and lettuce from the farm. We didn't have any meat so we had fried eggs for a protein. Maybe that is weird, but we liked it.



Now I didn't chronicle my improvised stir fry but I stir-fried carrots, a wack of snow peas, onions, garlic, and strips of steak. I made Rita's classic stir-fry sauce of broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch to make a thick savoury sauce. Served over rice.
