There’s nothing like a hearty bowl of soup after a long, chilly Monday. Daniel Princeton woke up a bit under the weather yesterday. He was feeling worse this morning after sitting outside at the Phillies game Sunday night. I was a good girlfriend and offered to go in his place last night but he insisted on going! You can’t say I didn’t offer, right?!
Meatless Monday soup
This is a Meatless Monday soup to feel good about. It’s full of onion, garlic, carrots, butternut squash, cauliflower, tomatoes, cannellini beans, and kale. Talk about filling up on vitamins and minerals!
I started out by sauteing the onion, carrots, butternut squash, cauliflower, and garlic. Sauteing the veggies before adding the broth gives another layer of flavor.
Then I added in the broth, tomatoes, beans, and seasoning. I used salt, pepper, thyme, and oregano. I stirred in the kale in the last 3 minutes.
I topped it with some Parmesan cheese and served the soup alongside some pumpkin beer bread. It’s the perfect way to welcome Fall.
