Green Soup

Green Soup Recipe




To start make a roux using 4 Tablespoons of flour and 4 Tablespoons of butter.



Add 8 cups of chicken stock, mix well.



Add 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch, mix again.



Add a 1/4 cup or more of each; diced carrots, green bell pepper, mushrooms, and dry onions.  We found that freezing the mushrooms keep them from turning to mush.  I also do not like onions so I substituted dry onions for onions powder.













simmer covered for 30 minutes



Add 3/4 teaspoon of white pepper (to taste) we opt out of this as I can't handle spicy food.  Also add 1/2 salt which is optional but we omit if using regular stock verse low sodium stock.  Finally add a heaping tablespoon of curry.



Mix well then simmer covered for 30 minutes.



While this is cooking away make white rice according to the directions.




In a bowl, add cooked rice and top with green soup.   *freezer directions below*





Enjoy!

    1. It is so good! It's great when you have veggies that aren't looking their best. Those carrots that are a bit flexible or those bell peppers that start looking a bit wrinkled. I always tend to cook veggies like that and this is a great use for them. Anytime! sorry it took so long to get it posted.
