Sweetpea's Spring Soup II
A sweet soup of spring vegetables was the order of the day.
Poor little Sweetpea (age 6) has succombed to the nasty flu virus that is going around our school. Sweetpea is a big soup fan and soup is always comforting, even on a hot day.
I kept it mild by using a chopped leek instead of onion and skipped the garlic all together. I used Trader Joe's Organic Vegetable broth mixed with water for the broth and added some red lentils to thicken, but kept the broth pretty light. Sweetpea requested there be no bits of tomato and no green leafy things, so I used diced baby potatoes, carrots, peas, sugar snap peas, and broccoli florettes. This was a very sweet and gentle soup, full of fresh flavor. We both loved this!
Here's last year's version of Sweetpea's Spring Soup.
