ASAP! Cleaning out produce drawer for SOUP
I need to use up all my fresh produce before leaving for a very long week end.
What goes together, what to leave out? I think I'm going to make either dumplings or fresh pumpkin pasta
Here is what I would like to combine so it doesn't end up in the compose pile.
Bunch of spinach
Bunch of flat Italian parsley
Bunch of green onions
Bag of carrots
Fresh Moteralla cheese
Box of beef broth
fresh tomatoes still in the garden
fress basil still in the garden
lavender still in the garden
Apples and pears
Lemons and orange,
Thanks all for your posts.
I ended up making a soup. I used one big white onion I didn't know had. Carmelized in oilive oil, used garlic, parsley,basil, spinach, and made my mom's hard soup dumplings with a nice amount of parmasean cheese mixed in the dough. It was so good.
For dessert I made a a simple brown sugar/butter carmel with some of my overcooked peach jam and thin sliced pears. Very rich. Won't waste a fresh pear like that again. Way too sweet.
I hear you about the dreaded chicken cubes...but frittata sounds different. And the fruits except pears will keep. Or take along to eat o the trip...
Broth isn't about to expire. Oh, also one orange sweet bell pepper and celery. I hate when I over buy produce especially since this has been a planned trip. darn.
